    another name for physiatrist?

    hi....i haven't posted here in ages and ages.
    i'm currently looking for a physiatrist (sp??......a sci doctor) in my area (long island, NY), and i've seen the term "doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation" or "physical and rehabilitative medicine" in the medicare-hmo book of doctors.
    is that the same thing as a physiatrist?
    i'm hoping so, cuz the word "physiatrist" isn't listed at all.

    Yes, you will usually see them listed under "physical medicine and rehabilitation" (or PM&R). Here is a listing from the board certifying body for physiatrists in your state:

    (KLD)
    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
