Dr. Fishman Says:
"

Because neurologists deal with the entire nervous system, I treat many types of patients, including those with significant psychiatric illness. The last group are always a challenge, and sometimes, hard to please. I take my job seriously. I take my patients seriously. I take my oath to do no harm seriously. Giving patients what they "demand" or read on google is not always good medicine.
