Specialties

Dr. Thomas J Lavie 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.

Ms.

Within 5 minutes of my first appointment he asked if I wanted a bite of the tuna salad he was eating, told me he liked my eyes, told me I could take up to 400 mg of a medicine I'm only taking 50 mg of and it wouldn't hurt me and he scratched his back on the corner of the wall as he talked. Insane. How is he a doctor?

IGNORED EMG TESTS PROVING PHYSICAL PROBLEM

This ignoramus diagnosed me as having a psychosomatic problem EVEN WHEN MY EMG TESTS PROVED DEFINITIVELY IT WAS PHYSICAL! EMG studies (several) confirmed I had serious peripheral nerve loss in my legs -- even then this quack insisted it was all just in my imagination! EMG machines have no imagination, nor do leg nerves biopsied as dead. A TOTAL INCOMPETENT!
