Specialties

Dr. Youssef A Dakka has the following 4 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • 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.

EMG Testing

I went to see Dr. Dakka to have an EMG Test done. He was a very kind and caring doctor who explained the test to me fully before starting and was very worried that I was ok throughout the test. He was very compassionate and took the time to answer any of my questions. He never rushed through the test. I would go to see him anytime as a doctor!!

Very professional and caring doctor

Dr. Dakka is still a young doctor and still fresh out of medical school. I have seen him a few times and what has always impressed me has been his willingness to listen from me, and to spend time with me, and above all else his knowledge and professionalism is great. If you want a doctor who cares and has compassion for his patients, and is willing to get to the bottom of your symptoms, Dr Dakka is the best.
