Specialties

Dr. Steven Kanfer has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Dr Steven Kanfer

This psychiatrist had me on medication that caused me stiffness for months. Then he was angry that the X Ray center said I have to get off the medication. A year later, put me on medication that caused stiffness again and when I complained, he increased it.

He is judgemental

He is on time and always answers calls quickly. He is not that easy to talk to. He gives off a judgmental and and disapproving tone. He is overly cautious with prescribing meds and is not open to patients input regarding medications. He is nice but when I leave his office I feel that I have to,apologize for needing medication

Two Stars

Doesn't believe that the patient has some insight into proper treatment. Too cautious and not willing to be creative in treatment.
