Specialties

Dr. Abul H Shirazi has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

awful

This Dr. was assigned to my elderly mother with dementia. He does NOT communicate, does not return phone calls. He prescribed a mix of powerful psych meds for her. I found out later that they were contraindicated to be used together and could have serious, even fatal, consequences. Do not have this physician treat anyone you are about.

Dr. Abul H. Shirazi

This man should NOT be practicing medicine of ANY kind!!! He does not communicate or listen to patient's family members and mis-diagnoses patients giving them the incorrect treatments. I am giving him one star (that's being very generous). He is totally incompetent and as a result, my husband's recovery from a stroke was delayed by at least a month.
