Specialties

Dr. Ashok K Bansal 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.

Chose a different provider

MR.Bansal dismissed me as a patient after I had missed ONE appointment. There's a reason he was the soonest available "doctor" when I requested the appointment. After asking around about Bansal, I found he has a very bad reputation, im appauled that Altru employes him, please avoid him at all costs. (Fortunately I can say that I have had great experiences with other psychiatrists besides Bansal at Altru)

Barely looked at me during the appointed, didn't listen much less answer questions. Psychiatry of all fields should involve lots of communication and he did very little. It also felt as though he was very judgmental instead of understanding which made me feel much worse after the appointment. I have zero confidence in his diagnosis or prescription after the (very short) appointment with him.
