Specialties

Dr. Ali Asghar has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

A Good Psychiatrist for Second Opinion or Referall

He appears very thoughtful and understanding. He doesn't seem to go along with everyone else in the industry, and evaluates based on standards not appearances. For example, he wanted me to take a full ADHD screening for adult ADHD because he thought I was simply handed the label for no reason. I think he is a good doctor, he was very caring and listened and explained things thoroughly. He changed my label from schizoaffective to bipolar because he knew I no longer fit the criteria. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a second opinion or thoughtful explanations and approaches. While he may talk quickly he does know what he is talking about.
