Dr. Ali E El-Menshawi has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I went in with issues from a medication given by another dr in his practice. Instead of hearing my complaints of bad side effects. He went on to try to convince me I didn't know but I had anxiety and even had ADD. I even heard him complain to the receptions about having to take on a new case. I went in with one issue was going to leave with two new ones. I had to argue with him that I didn't want adderol for add. Then he try to give me zanix for anxiety saying my chart says I have take it before. Which I never had. I left with a new prescription for anxiety. I took this for two days and felt way suicidal and worse then I ever had. When I called the office I got no call back . I had to just decide to stop taking this medication on my own. When I was finally did get a call back it was not him but the other dr in his practice. She would not even admit to any mistake on their part ...
Absolutely TERRIBLE. First off, very religious. I don't have a problem with religious people and I have many close friends and family members who are religious. However, don't shove it in my face. His office is COVERED with religious memorabilia. Maybe in Egypt in the the 70's that was okay, but not today, not here. Second, and most importantly in my eyes, he went behind my back SEVERAL times, treating me according to what he found out from outside sources. Go ahead and read that last sentence again. I'll wait... In fact, it was very biased because both instances, the family member in question had NO IDEA what they were talking about. Instead of treating me like an adult, he acted like an overbearing parent, never admitting what he did. In fact, the family member later told me what she told him, confirming that he did indeed find this out from her. Nothing else explains his odd behavior. Very unprofessional, and not very personable at all. So sure, go visit him if you want. Not.
I saw this doctor regularly for over a year, we tried and failed with meds, one of which caused me to feel suicidal, he was out of the country, noone on call for him then at my next appt. he basically blew me off and a week later I got a letter saying he could no longer be my physician. He sure liked my insurance coverage for 50 minutes and only seeing me for 10. na, save your copay, this one is no good.
