Specialties

Dr. Arun K Somani 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.

OK Doctor

He diagnosed my condition fairly quickly and adjust the dose to the correct amount in 2 months. Very professional towards me as a patient. The attention during this first months was adequate, although he tends to be very opinionative and give unsolicited advice. After the dose get adjusted he seemed not to care anymore about you: he speed up the sessions, looked bored and/or distracted and the whole experience become a mandatory visit every month, just for him collect his check and issue a monthly prescription (no more than 30 days). Apparently is related to the Florida law, but I am not sure. I got a trustworthy opinion from two females patients of him and - according to them - he could have a negative biased attitude toward women and - sometimes - a bit sexist. The receptionist is extremely efficient regarding appointment management, but she does not have control over insurance activity. The only who does that is Dr. Somani (!?) and very often he make mistakes. The office does not accept credit cards or debit cards. He only issue paper prescriptions and ever - never - FAX them to Pharmacies.

Truly empathetic to his patients. He does not over medicate and he is extremely patient; he even understood my unorthodox living conditions and did not ever judge me based on my alternative/eccentric appearance. I've recommended him to family and friends who have returned with nothing but wonderful things to say about their experience. I would still be in his care if I hadn't moved so far away from his office. Now I hold every other psychiatrist to the high standard which he holds himself to. Thank you, Dr. Somani!
