  • 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.

Great experience

The experience was remarkably helpful and informative. Dr. Abduk-Malak was serious, responsive and thorough in his questions and examination. I was especially impressed in his sympathy and understanding of my husband's problems and his interest in finding if there were additional factors that were contributing to his condition. It really is wise ti get a second opinion from this caring doctor. Amy Hnatko

Needs to learn how to listen

Very distant; didn't listen carefully to my symptoms; changed a diagnosis on my medical history without asking me any questions about that condition. Had to almost beg to have him re-review test results which led to a more definitive diagnosis.

One Star

Cursory exam, chose to ignore symptoms, told me at the first exam that he knew what was wrong. Once blood test came back negative, has insisted that none of my symptoms mattered, and that I needed anti-depressants. Solution to any described symptom is anti-depressants.
