Dr. Amita S Nayyar 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 am a patient with PTSD from long-term childhood sexual assault, requiring treatment for many years, involving seversl dotors, therapists, & medications. Dr. Nayyar has to be the very best I have ever seen. Karen, the office manager, is ALWAYS kind and helpful in all my dealings with her. Never have I found Karen to be rude. As for the noise machine, any time you seek treatment in mental health, because of the very personl nature of the work, they always have a noise machine that sits OUTSIDE the door in order to mask any conversations going on inside. Does the doctor type on her computer as she talks with you? Yes she does. However, Dr. Nayyar does ask each patient at the first visit, if they are okay with her typing as you talk--it's up to the patient to accept or decline. Additionally, because have Multiple Sclerosis, I find it helpful that the doctor is also trained in Neuro-Psychiatry. I would feel very comfortable having Dr. Nayyar treat anyone in my family, including my children and my grandchildren. You can't go wrong by seeking care with Dr. Nayyar.
Dr. Nayyar has a very warm, encouraging, understanding and caring bedside manner and takes the time to listen & talk. And yes, while sometimes you do wait, I don't mind as I know she is giving her Patients the time they need like she does for me. She was able to diagnose my Adult ADHD and I like her cautious and gradual approach to treating with medication as well as offering very insightful & helpful tips & suggestions on non medicated ways to deal with the condition. I realize now how difficult it is to find Drs. who are not specifically Child Psychologist to diagnose & treat Adult ADHD. I wish there were more like her and that I could have crossed paths with someone like her a long time ago.
I HAVE SEEN MANY DRS., THERAPISTS ETC OVER THE PAST 25 YEARS. DR NAYYAR IS AN AMAZING PHYSICIAN WHO REALLY TAKES TIME TO HEAR HER PTS AND IS WILLING TO WORK WITH THEM TO ACHIEVE THEIR OPTIMAL LEVEL OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS. I COULD NOT RECOMMEND HER MORE HIGHLY. I PAY HER OUT OF POCKET AS MY CURRENT INSURACE IS ONE SHE DOES NOT PARTICIPATE WITH THAT IS HOE HIGHLY I THINK OF HER. SHE DOES OCCASIONALLY RUN OVER BUT THAT IS BECAUSE SHE WILL GIVE YOU HER UNDIVIDED ATTENTION IN ORDER TO HELP YOU SO I DO NOT REALLY MIND WAITING FOR HER
