Specialties

Dr. Susan P Sherkow 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.

Thank you for giving us hope!

Originally I was afraid of bringing my daughter to see someone because of all the failures and lack of progress we have had in the past. My friend recommended Dr Sherkow after her daughter was doing better in school, experiencing less tantrums and being more affectionate. We felt like Dr Sherkow took the time to listen to our family dynamic and help us implement changes. Both my husband, extended family and teachers have seen the improvement our son is making. At first i was skeptical about play therapy but it seems to help him open up and feel comfortable.We are hopeful and relieved to have dr Sherkow helping us.

Specialist in Child Autism

If you're concerned about your child and are wondering about an autism diagnosis, make an appointment with Dr. Sherkow. She's a trained psychiatrist who treats children with autism. She's the kind of specialist a parent would be lucky to have for their child. Her offices are very accessible (on the Upper East Side, on 93rd just of the park) and well appointed. Can't recommend her enough.
