Specialties

Dr. Sanford M Fineman has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Dr. Fineman. Best neurologist I've seen!

Best neurologist in Glendale/Phoenix area. I have seen over 10 different neurologist in this area and he is by far the most attentive and has the best bedside manner and actually listens to you rather than a 5 minute appointment that doeset really help anything with most other neurologists. Very knowledgeable and takes his time to research something if needed.

It's been awhile since I've been able to see Dr. Fineman because many of the insurance carriers I had didn't cover him. He was the best neurologist I ever had!

Headache and Pain Guidanced

Dr. Fineman brought me relief after suffering years of migrain headaches through his knowledge and techniques in the latest treatment methods. I finally feel that they are manageable after decades of suffering. He takes the time to listen to you and is very thorough when discussing your health needs. He also was able to change my life when it came to my suffering from body pain. After years of seeing a pain management doctor to no avail, Dr. Fineman addressed medication changes that reduced my pain for the first time in years. He's great and I admire him as a doctor.
