Specialties

Dr. Richard A Bernstein has the following 3 specialties

  • Vascular Neurology
  • 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.

Must wait over 6 months to obtain an appointment for an existing patient. Very rushed through appointment (after waiting 6 months to see doctor). Dr. Bernstein spent less than 15 minutes total with patient and was very uninterested in patients well being.

Brilliant physician and scientisi

Dr. Bernstein is a brilliant scientist and a meticulous physician. He is heavily involved in research and is not a physician who holds patients hands but he is clearly committed to their care. I am a former biomedical scientist with advanced degrees and can communicate with Dr, Bernstein at a level that demands little of his time. If your problem is potentially dangerous you may be willing to see someone on top of their game who is not a good hand holder. It is probably very difficult for a new patient to see Dr. Bernstein without a referral.
