Specialties

Dr. Darshankumar A Dave has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

I actually saw Dr. Dave 3 times, once in the ER and twice in office. All other times have been with a different assistant. Not clear with tests to be done. Test results are not explained. Tests ordered are not complete. He told me he was ordering an MRI of my brain and neck ~ when arrived for the MRI was told it was only of my brain. I would have to have another order for neck. My last visit with him he was rude and threatening. I was trying to get answers to what is wrong. Told me he had said it was only arthritis and I would have to learn to live with it. That was a first. I walk around like I am in a pin ball machine. When I continued to ask questions about treatment he threatened to have my driver license taken from me. Since I suffer with vertigo 24 hours a day I am not able to drive. I am seeking a second opinion.

Very incompetent and rude has been treating my mother two months ago she suffered a stroke which has triggered seizures, everyday she gets worse than the day before he acts like he is too busy or it is beneath him to answer your questions and when I said I would like her to have a second opinion he got a major attitude and became rude.

He has no bedside manner and will keep scheduling follow up visits for no treatment, other than to bill your insurance. He does not show any sympathy and does not listen well. He is hard to understand .

very rude

This doctor is very rude and isn't professional at all. He has poor bedside manners and he misdiagnosed my condition by a mile. Don't waste your time on this man, go to someone who can help you.

Great Doctor

He saved my life. My symptoms were confusing and i was sinking fast. He assessed my situation..narrowed it down and, while awaiting a series of complicated test results, administered medications that stopped the progress of the nerve related disease that was eventually defined as CIDP. With his direction and care i feel that I have nearly fully recovered from a devastating disease.
