  • 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.

    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.

No compassion

I don’t even get to seen this doctor. Usually see a nurse practitioner who doesn’t prescribe anything. He’s always ‘away.’ I have chronic pain and was diagnosed over a decade ago. I saw other pain management doctors and they prescribed me pain medication that actually helped relieve my agony. With him? Muscle relaxers. They do nothing. I’ve told him and he says he’ll keep upping it. It’s like taking a sugar pill. I’m tired of it. Basically treats me like a hypochondriac. Seeing a different doctor soon. Goodbye!

Never Again!

Like others have said, Having and MD at the end of your name in no way means anything! I have serious pain. He could see that but told me to take antidepressants! Is he kidding me? He is a cold hearted......... Find a Dr with compassion because he has none!

WARNING!! DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR

i went to this doctor for pain management for back pain that was so bad i couldnt do every day functions, he never sent me for any tests he gave me a RX for pain meds and a whole bunch of muscle relaxants, obciously the pain meds helped because they are pain meds lol! well i would go to him every month and get my medications. this doctor got me hooked on pain medications and then he would lose his patience when i was trying to come off and i was having withdrawals. he had no compassion NOTHING!! he said "yah you wont feel well for a couple of days but then you will be fine" well easier said then DONE! after that i was in tears i wanted to be off th is medicine and i wanted to do it the "right way" well im glad to say that i found a doctor who saw me right away and helped me get off the right way he was compassionate and had ALOT of patience with me. and im happy to say that im off the pain medication and feel like a million bucks! long story short do not go to this doctor you will wait months for an appointment for him to give you pain pills and tell you to come in every month so he can bill you so you can get your pain medication and when your ready to get off he just ditches you. dont go to him. please!! he deserves ZERO stars. also he is unprofessional he treats everyone who comes in for pain like they are drug seeking individuals and treat them like they already have a problem when all they are looking for his pain relief.
