Specialties

Dr. Ashot Azatian 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.

Great Dr. One heck of a good guy !

This Dr. is very intelligent .He can read a person well ,although he is quite and you may think he's not paying attention .He doesn't forget anything you tell him . He has been right on in prescribing my medication and making adjustments when needed . He does not mind telling you when you need to be told. He made me aware of my immaturity .He said " Harry , your a 58 year man who thinks he 15. " He was right. I really appreciate Dr. Azatian . He has been treating me for attention deficet disorder for a bout 3 yrs.

Doesn't need my business

I set an appointment, it took two months to get to see him. I lost my wallet before the appointment (found it at a donut shop), I was 21 minutes late to my appointment. (A little my fault), but I called before and told them I was going to be late. When I arrived he wouldn't see me. They tried to reschedule me for another month down the road. No thanks. He isn't the only game in town and from seeing his previous reviews. I probably dodged a bullet. Will not be rescheduling. Rude receptionists. I felt like my time was disrespected. Even though I was late, I was very apologetic and feel that waiting two months for an appointment, should have received more empathy.

Three Stars

I have had to wait at least 30 minutes after my appointment time nearly every visit. When I try to tell him what's going on with me, he makes inappropriate comments when talking to someone suffering from depression such as asking if I'm really depressed or just lazy. I have had to wait at the window to check in for long periods while there was no one at the reception desk or while the person took her time doing other things. On my 3rd visit after my insurance co-pay had decreased, they still tried to insist my copay was $40 instead of $25. I am in the process of looking for another psychiatrist on my insurance to change to. I would not recommend him.

One Star

Cancels appointments at the last minute regularly, then you have to wait 6-8 weeks to get back in. Prescribed Ambien, I told him I didn't want to be addicted to something. My primary care has told me to get off of it & it's been a terrible struggle. Office staff is so unfriendly.
