Our Medical Services

A neurologist is a medical doctor with additional special training in diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. A neurologist’s medical training includes college, four years of medical school, a one-year internship and three years of neurology residency training. Some neurologists have additional training in one area of neurology such as stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders or dementia.

Many disorders can be treated. Treatment or symptomatic relief is different for each condition. To find treatment options, Dr. Kassicieh will perform and interpret tests of the brain or nervous system. Treatment can help patients with neurological disorders maintain the best possible quality of life.

What We Treat: We diagnose & treat disorders of the nervous system, brain, spinal cord, nerves, muscles and pain. Common neurological disorders include:

  • Migraine/Headache
  • Head, neck and backpain
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s/Dementia
  • Seizures
  • Stroke
  • Sleep disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Pain
  • Tremor
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Brain tumors
  • Neuropathy
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease)

Platelet rich plasma or PRP is derived from blood. The usual case is a patient wanting PRP therapy will have their own blood drawn and PRP will be extracted from this. This is called autologous blood (“from yourself’.) This has the great advantage that there is no risk of transmitting any infectious agent or having a graft rejection because the patient’s own blood is being used.

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle stiffness (rigidity), slowness of movement (bradykinesia), postural instability (gait imbalance) and tremor. The diagnosis is made on the basis of detailed history and neurological exam. This is no diagnostic test to make the diagnosis of Parkinson disease. The disease usually starts in individuals over the age of 65. The first symptom may be a mild resting tremor in one hand.

CNS Vital Signs in-office neurocognitive testing procedure is a non-invasive clinical procedure to efficiently and objectively assess a broad spectrum of brain function performance or domains under challenge (cognition stress test) and 50+ computerized clinical and quality rating instruments e.g., PQRS to enable the measuring of important clinical symptoms, behaviors, and comorbidities to …

  • Detect and track even slight (millisecond precision) cognitive impairments that can assist clinicians in the evaluation and management of neurodegenerative, neuropsychiatric, neurotraumatic and neurodevelopmental disorders providing immediate clinical insight into a patient’s current status and level of impairment
  • Help evaluate the possibility of secondary gain e.g., academic accommodation, drug or disability seeking, malingering, symptom feigning etc. with embedded cognitive performance validity indicators
  • Give patients, family members and caregivers knowledge of cognitive domains that underpin the ability to conduct activities of daily living
  • Automate the collection of guideline recommended clinical and quality measures e.g., PQRS, recommended by professional societies and payers
  • Establish a neurocognitive baseline in each patient to use in later treatment decisions
  • Longitudinally track clinical endpoints to aid in the monitoring and management of many clinical conditions and treatments e.g., measure the response to treatment like AD/HD medication, rehabilitation efforts, cognitive behavioral therapy – CBT, etc. and used to measure clinical outcomes
  • Help identify domains needing additional or full neuropsychological evaluations
