Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bressler "As part of your treatment plan, our thoroughness and investigation of your neurological conditions may seek the opinions of other medical and non-medical providers from different disciplines, such as neurosurgery, rheumatology, pain management, orthopedic, cardiology, physical therapy, acupuncture, neuropsychology, infectious disease and many others.

While we treat and oversee your entire neurological care, we also collaborate with your internist because they play a central role in putting together and managing your entire healthcare.  

Our knowledge of difficult health issues and stressors on loved ones makes our goal of providing an ideal healthcare experience an essential part of our core principle: "providing you and your family neurology healthcare one patient at a time".

Thank you for visiting. We look forward to participating in your care and being part of your trusted  healthcare team .

Patient Comments (3)

Going to Dr Bressler was just wonderful for my ongoing migraines and neurological issues. She gave me full attention and is just overall a great Neurologist. I needed to get a new Doctor as mine had retired early and I needed someone fast and Dr Bressler was there for me.

My husband Daniel was suffering from intense neuropathy pain all weekend. We did not have a neurologist. In desperation I googled "neurologists in Syosset" and found Dr Bressler' s website. When I called, her office manager Anthony, was wonderful. He immediately gave us an appointment for 12:00...more
