Dr. Richard B Kasdan has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Unprofessional, Liar, & Mentally Ill
Self-verified patient of Dr. Richard B Kasdan - Posted on March 22nd, 2019
I searched the internet seeking a 2nd opinion from Dr. Richard Kasdan, Neurologist service. He is a unprofessional disrespectful licensee that demonstrated unethical, immoral, & condescending practices far below an acceptable standard of State Board of PA practice. He is an unprofessional lying neurologist that made many false statements about me in his progress notes. He questioned the professional care provided by my doctors as I positively responded. Immediately, he made many very unprofessional comments about them & attempted to insult their medical qualifications. I asked him do you know them? Do you know what type of medical care they have provided for me? How dare you try & attempt to belittle them? He is very condescending and lacks respect for other professionals within the same study. In addition, he also tried to humiliate me by stating & writing negative false comments. He twisted my words about the symptoms and wrote false accusations that I NEVER said &/or discussed with him. OMG, I was very upset when I retrieved a copy of his lying progress notes. This man has a very serious mental problem & his Neurologist license needs revoked. Likewise, I have NEVER met a rude, arrogant, & unprofessional doctor that lies consistently. Furthermore, this doctor does not know me to say I don’t love myself. For the record, I love myself & I am love by God. Reference my Facebook page; it’s all above empowering, encouraging & motivating people. At the same time, I am rearching if I can file a lawsuit for falsifying information & defamation of character.

It was humiliating . I was sent to him by workers comp . Bought and paid for by comp ! He never even looked at any of the 40 some documents by 5 different specialists that I was instructed to bring with me . Told me there was nothing wrong with me . He was rude and should have his license taken away . A terrible and humiliating experience !
A total Quack

He told me upon first sight that I looked good to him and that I am fine. When I mentioned the numbness and tingling in my hand, he immediately said he would get me a brace to keep me from bumping my ulnar nerve (by my elbow) to get rid of the tingling - WITHOUT listening to any of my other symptoms! When he tested my face for numbness, he jabbed the pin so hard that he drew blood and left a mark for weeks. Worst part? He had a full conversation with another patient about their results in the hallway with me two feet away (where they had said for me to wait). It was an uncomfortable conversation where he obviously thought the patient was making up symptoms to get out of work. Perhaps he has not heard of HIPAA/privacy laws?? He said his 5 partners left him last May - HINT? He wasted my valuable time, my insurance's money, was condescending and unprofessional.
Don't Go To Dr. Kasdan

I, too, was referred to this "doctor" by my PCP and since I know she has my best interests at heart, I was extremely surprised. He walked in to the exam room, didn't introduce himself and just assumed that my sister was the patient. He was rude, dismissive and arrogant. He questioned my reason for being there, as if I had nothing better to do with my time or money. He talked over me continually without listening at all and seemed to direct his comments toward my sister, rather than me as if I were an idiot. He also questioned a procedure that my PCP had ordered and made very unprofessional remarks about another doctor that I had seen. My first instinct was to get up and leave and I am so very sorry that I didn't. I would not recommend him for a splinter.
