Specialties

Dr. Peter L Heilbroner has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Stay AWAY!!!!!

This "doctor" is detrimental to you and your child's well being. He is unethical. He is harsh, mean and really does not care to connect, understand or help the patient. I wish I read these reviews before I scheduled an appointment with this animal! I would give him zero stars if that was an option.

Should have read reviews before appointment - he's terrible

I wish I read these reviews before wasting $500 and a half a day of my family's lives seeing this quack. What a joke. He should not have a medical license. The nurse practitioner (who was nice) spent maybe 5-10 minutes with my 4-year-old son, who we brought in for a diagnosis because he is hyperactive. She asked my son a question or two about school and then had him touch his toes and do a few motor skill tests. She then left and came back with the doctor. He was extremely obnoxious. He said our son is hyper and will always be that way and thats just how he is. He offered to prescribe a blood pressure medication that usually makes kids go to sleep. When we told him we didn't want medication based on a quick consult he was offended and said if we sought out behavioral therapy it wouldn't work. HUGE waste of time and money. I hope people read this and find someone else to see.

Very Knowledgeable and Dedicated

I'm very happy I did not allow anyone's negative judgement stop me from taking my child to see him. Not only is he highly knowledgeable but he was more than thorough. He Quietly evaluated my child from the moment he called us in. Don't let his serious, focused and honesty be mistaken for rude or not understanding enough. He is very understanding. During my visit there were serious things discussed about family topics. These are difficult to share. My child and I felt comfortable enough to be honest. My child loved his personality. He respected her opinion. I suggest you see the doctor and make your own opinion. If you allow ratings lead your personal opinions. You are not doing what's right for your child.

Concerned parent

I agree with everyone that wrote a review before me and wish I had read it!! Dr. Heilbroner is a nasty, arrogant,p man who doesn't take pride nor interest inhis role as a medical professional. My daughter has been having trouble in school and basically said as long as she's not failing you're in good shape. Every time I opened my mouth to explain something, he reprimanded me. Seriously, this man is not self aware of his actions and shouldn't be a medical professional. But dr. Berlin in that same practice is a gentle, personable Dr. with great listening skills.
