Dr. Ron A Shatzmiller has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • 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.

  • 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.

One Star

Unobservant, dismissive of very serious issues; inaccurate diagnosis and not an aggressive advocate for his patients at all. Now much better off with my new neurologist.

Five Stars

Dr. Shatzmiller is incredibly competent in his areas of expertise. He is not afraid, or to proud, to refer if necessary to someone else. He is funny, laid-back, and presents an excellent bedside manner. He definitely gives me and my son the best care he is able to. He always follows up with questions, even if he has to research a bit. He is one of the best doctors I've had the pleasure of working with as a patient. I've been his patient for a little over two years. I hope this helps.

Inaccurate Diagnosis

Was not interested at all in accurately diagnosing, NOR treating. Just claimed "don't worry your not that sick". Then claimed I had "Fibromyalgia". Turns out my other 2 Drs were right and Dr Shatzmiller was 100% wrong. I am better now thanks to not listening to Dr Shatzmiller and listening to Drs with experience instead.

The best neurologist I have ever been to

I was so impressed with Dr. Shatzmiller because he spent an incredible amount of time with me, and discussed my possible problems in detail. I am still going to him as the problems aren't solved as yet. I highly recommend him.
