Specialties

Dr. Yi J Zhang has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurological Surgery

    A neurological surgeon is a physician who surgically treats disorders of the nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
    In addition to treating trauma of the head and spine, these doctors also treat disorders like epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    Neurological surgeons can perform surgical procedures on the brain, such as stereotactic surgery, microsurgery, endoscopic surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and endovascular image guided methods.

  • Neuroradiology

    Neuroradiologists focus specifically on diagnosing conditions related to the nervous system, spine, head and neck through radiology. They can identify abnormalities in these areas and help doctors properly diagnose the presence of tumors, aneurysms and even dementia.
    It’s also common for them to consult with patients with persistent headaches or back pains, trauma to a certain area, or any issue that can affect brain function, such as a stroke. Like any radiologist, they are trained to perform x-rays, cat scans, ultrasounds and MRIs, but they work closely with neurologists and neurosurgeons.

Disheartened

My daughter had to see Dr. Zhang due to us finding out that she had a brain aneurysm. We found out 1 day and the same day she was admitted to hospital. Dr. Zhang was more interested in research than my child and that was disheartening. I believe God allows things for a reason and I believe Dr. Zhang has served his purpose in our lives but it's now time to move on. We have contacted his office on several occasions due to complications my daughter has had and as of this date we have not received one phone call from them. It's not as if we left messages and they weren't received we spoke directly to office staff. It's been almost 2 months and nothing. In addition, when my daughter was released from the hospital she was released without much needed medication that we found out later she was supposed to have. This happened 2 times. I don't understand what's happening but I'm trusting God to lead us elsewhere. Just want others to be informed; however, I know one bad experience for one individual doesn't mean bad experiences for all.

No follow up care.

VP shunt surgery was performed on my daughter and we can never get an appointment for a follow up. His office states she needs a new CT scan of the head but they won't order it, they say get here primary care DR. to order it. Primary care won't order it because they don't need it for their treatment. I am finding another neurosurgeon for her continued care.
