Specialties

Dr. Archana Chopra 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.

One Star

Doesn't listen to legitimate concerns. I often feel like I'm not heard and almost always leave feeling frustrated and offended. Would switch if I could find another psychiatrist with an opening.

Difficult Experience

My experience with Dr. Chopra has not been the best. In order to maintain anonymity I will say I have seen her more than once but not more than 20 times, but enough to give an accurate review. Her appointments are extremely short, usually 15-20 minutes and are charged quite a hefty rate for such a short appointment. A typical appointment consists of "how are you doing?" and her basically listening to you talk about any major happenings in your life throughout the past month or two. After 15 minutes she writes the same prescription almost every visit, rarely (if ever) changing or adding any new dosages or medications. Any issues brought up or chief complaints are not heard or listened to at all, and she tends to frequently brush off psychiatric issues that you've recently been having as "just life" when you clearly know there is something much deeper going on within yourself. Overall I wouldn't recommend her to anyone, I received better mental health service from my family doctor than from her, ever, and I always leave the office disappointed or upset. I hate to sound so harsh, but it is how it is, and I have had psychiatrists in the past that actually LISTEN and ask more questions; she seems to be simply interested in collecting her payment and writing a refill script and getting you out the door.
