Dr. Balraj S Dhillon has the following 2 specialties
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 found Dr. Dhillon to be apathetic, impatient, arrogant, & defensive. The exact qualities you should NOT have as a psychiatrist. I was recently diagnosed with ADHD & he only wanted to prescribe adderall. I did not like the side effects & asked if he could suggest an alternative. His apathetic & irritated response was, “Adderall is what I prescribe most. It works the best.”….Such an odd answer from a seasoned Psychiatrist. I had spoken with my PCP & done my own research & was told that vyvanse could be a good alternative as it is smoother & most people do not experience crashes from it. When I suggested what my PCP suggested, he snapped back with “Well then why didn’t you ask her to prescribe it you?” Hello, she’s not a mental care specialist. YOU are! Every time I asked him relevant questions about my condition & medication, he would respond in irritation & exasperation. I would tell him what I read in my own research via articles & forums & just wanted his opinion &/or clarification from him. He responded with “What degrees do they have? Why would you listen to them? They are not experts. Everyone’s body is different & everyone responds differently to different medications.” This from a man who couldn’t take time or care to help me find an alternative to adderall. He then proceeded to call me OCD for doing internet research. Perhaps I wouldn’t feel the need to do my own research & educate myself if he was more approachable & willing to answer my questions & concerns in a patient & caring manner. I told him that patient should be able to ask their Dr questions & that he didn’t seem to care. His response? “Maybe you should go find someone who cares.” WOW. This from a “Dr” who deals with people who have depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. Don’t waste your time & money with this man. He has no business being a psychiatrist. Do yourself a favor & go find yourself a real Dr who actually cares about helping people. Hope this helps.
Dr. Dhillion is an absolute professional. His attitude towards his patients is as if they are equals and looks at their symptoms as if they are his own. Rarely do I write reviews, and this Dr. Is worth one of them. I was very nervous about seeing a psychiatrist and the experience was wonderful. Every time I visit, he spends a decent amount of time with me and listens to what I am actually saying. So many dr's just pass off your concerns and write you a script of the new hottest drug. Not this guy. He really does want what's best for you.
