Specialties

Dr. Aneil M Shirke 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.

No way

Awful - I felt unseen, unheard, and manipulated almost immediately. The chair provided was so low my knees were at my chin. He provided instant solutions to anything I raised, and slight but palpable condescension if I disagreed. You're vulnerable as a new patient, and worry what you're feeling might be your own anxiety, so I went back a few times. I regret that.

A complete jerk.

After the first of three sessions, the doctor determined a wildly inaccurate diagnosis and at the second session bullied me with a series of mandatory life changes. I went for one more session to discuss all this, during which he was sarcastic. He then overbilled my insurance.

This doctor's strengths are overshadowed by his major weaknesses. I know at least one other person who is or has been a patient of this psychiatrist, and our experiences are or were similar. Dr. Shirke is smart, but not the Einstein or Freud he pretends to be. He's ambitious, but treats patients like either obstacles or stepping stones toward his goals. Either way, we exist more for him to use than to help. All in all, he's not just miscast but creepy as a psychiatrist. He might have been perfect as an Investment banker, and he seems to want patients in that mold whether we want to be molded or not.
