Dr. Armita Bijari has the following 3 specialties
- Clinical Neurophysiology
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 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.

I originally saw Dr. Bijari for migraine relief. I have a long family history of migraines, going back at least 4 generations. We chose to try Botox injections and my life has improved more than I dreamed possible. I also had a serious fall and the injury became infected. I saw Dr. Bijari and she immediately called a colleague who saw me on her day off to evaluate the wound. I can't begin to list the number of times she has assisted myself and others with referrals and she is currently evaluating an MRI for my husband.
Amazing doctor... went with my mom for 2 appointments. Dr Bijari focuses all attention on her patient and makes them feel as if they are her sole assignment for the day. When an important issue is addressed, she immediately picks up the phone to have other doctors results sent over asap or will order tests on the spot. Her patients leave realizing they are in the best hands possible!
