Specialties

Dr. Steven C Karceski 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.

Best Doctor Ever

I've never met a doctor who is more patient, kind and caring. He is very passionate about his job and takes the time to ensure he gets everything right. His staff is just amazing as they are up to date with everything. He seems quite strict, however they get the job done. He's the best doctor I've ever had.

As a previous patient of yours almost 14 years ago, I would like to direct something to your attention. Post surgery. all seizures during the day completely stopped, however seizures when asleep began. I am still on drugs and wonder if this happened to others who had this surgery too. Thank you for your time and response if possible.

Dr.Karceski is my hero

I"m in awe of Dr.Steven Karceski, not only as a doctor, but I"m in awe of him as a human being. I guess I would describe as him a "medical angel"! He is caring, he actually listens to everything I say and not just because it's his "job". He is sensitive to the fact that seizures can be really frightening. It's difficult to put into words how wonderful he is. He is what a doctor SHOULD BE andunfortunately I have not met many like him. I can't say enough. I feel as if he's changed my life :( Thank you Dr. Karceski ! p.s. I forgot to mention he is brilliant :)

Dr. Karceski is the best neurologist in NYC and a wonderful person

Dr. Karceski is my neurologist. By far, he is the best neurologist I've ever seen. I have adult onset seizure disorder. He is thorough, painstaking in his detail and examination, and he listens to you and speaks to you with kindness and caring that is very rare in NYC. He also returns calls promptly and spends time on the phone if you have an emergency. You will leave Dr. Karceski knowing you received the best treatment available by a competent skilled neurologist. I can't recommend him highly enough.
