Specialties

Dr. Avsim S Azizi 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.

I dont recommend him

I was horrified by the was Ausim Azizi spoke with me. His temper was something I found frightening. I can not imagine him shouting at a male patient that way. If his own practice, I doubt he would attract patients. I am disappointed that Temple has not replaced him. Someone said I should file a complaint about him, because if he treats me that way, they thought he probably treats others that way.

being in pain just got worse!

the doctor did not properly fill out my prescription, so far I've been calling them its been two days and they have been very unhelpful still isnt filled out. His secretary was not to helpful he is between two offices, however the receptionist Mary Jo in the hospital went above and beyond trying to help unfortunately i am at the Dr's mercy i may just call my primary for a prescription and to think i pay for insurance to be treated this way. Also dont think a person can be assessed in a 15 min dr. appt he was very nonchalat.
