Dr. Staley A Brod has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
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.

I was able to get in to Dr. Brod very quickly - that probably should have told me something. I have never in my life had such a horrible medical experience as I did with Dr. Brod. He walked in the door of the exam room knowing what he would ultimately tell me. He did not take the time to review my symptoms or medical history, he did not offer me any helpful suggestions, and when I asked him him how he could know that my umpteen MS symptoms were, in fact, not MS symptoms, his answer was, "I just know.". I also suffer from PBA (a neurological issue symptomatic of MS), and had an episode in his office. He, the neurologist, didn't recognize it when it was right in front of his face. He offered me zero help, and he made it clear that I - the consumer - was wasting his time. He literally laughed in my face multiple times throughout this visit; I have never even heard of a doctor with worse bedside manner. I find these positive reviews of him incredibly surprising, and I believe that he is one of those doctors that feel the need to know more than everyone else. I came in armed with information, and he gave me the impression that he just wanted to prove me (and two other physicians that believe me to have neuro issues) wrong. I wouldn't wish this guy on my worst enemy.I found him to be an absolutely horrid man.
I was extremely nervous when I came in to see him. He put me at ease because he was calm and understood what I was going through in gave the information that was useful to me. He told me all about my options but at the end I just ask him what I should do and I took his advice it's all worked out the best.
This is a very concerned individual who listen to my problems very carefully. Although he was unable to figure out exactly what's going on 1st time I saw him, he did reassure me with his demeanor and bedside manner. After several visits it became clear what my problem was and he referred me off to the appropriate specialist. Previously, I have been unable to get a straight answer from anyone and at least he got me to the right individual who subsequently helped me a great deal. I appreciate his insight number problem and would recommend him to anybody else that needed to see a neurologist.
