Specialties

Dr. Stephen L Wayne has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Doctor is good, but staff is horrendous!

I have no complaints about the doctor, but the staff are discourteous. They can't seem to keep track of scheduling, messages, or their applicable office policies. Anytime there is an issue they seem to point towards a new office policy that went into effect or an employee that left. I, personally, don't like to patron offices like this one. I don't think my hard-earned money (including the insurance premiums I pay) should help these substandard employees earn a living.

bell's palsy visit

Realizing that Bell's Palsy is neither life-threatening or serious, it is extremely devastating both emotionally and psychologically. During my visit, I was given an appropriate medical exam but felt that I was a teaching tool for the young doctor with Dr. Wayne. The subject of helping cope with this affliction was basically brushed off with the information that "it will pass". Also the condition of nerve pain was simply dismissed with the same response. It really could have been somewhat comforting to have the doctor sit down face to face with me and verbalize understanding of my feelings and give just the slightest bit of sympathy that I have a crooked face, have pain and am embarrassed for anyone to look at me. These are common feelings for the palsy patient to have and Dr. Wayne, being a psychiatrist as well as neurologist, could have offered a little more emotional support. So, I was exited and forgotten, the doctor prepared for his next patient. I certainly hope that the next patient with a similar affliction can be treated a little more gently than I was. I feel that this could be a huge part of the healing process to know that your doctor cares. I am not a "sissy". I am a Registered Nurse in a public job dealing face to face with my patients and all persons involved. Now, I am unable to face anyone until this heals, therefore I can't work. So, Dr. Wayne, there are a lot of factors involved with someone who has palsy, not just emotional, psychological, pain,physical . . . their life and livelihood is involved.
