Dr. Dhia Alwardi has the following 3 specialties
- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.
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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Alzheimer's Disease
- Migraine Disorders
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

It was my first visit. Dr. Dhia wanted to have "the short version of the story". He did not even bother looking at my medical file and previous exams and tests. He just wanted me out the door, he was in such a hurry to get me out. He kept on complaining that "the insurance covers this and does not cover that", and " the referring doctor should do everything. I only consult to him". I basically got shortchanged because Dr. Dhia is not satisfied with what the insurance pays him to see me, as if it was my problem and as if I had forced him to work with this insurance and accept their clients... "This is how the business is", he said, Twice. I thought a doctor was in the business of treating and caring for people, not counting pennies, but what do I know. This was a horrible experience and I would not go back to see this person, even if he was the last neurologist left on the face of this earth.
Dr. Al-Wardi has helped me in so many different way. He has helped me with my medical diagnosis and my emotional break down. He has a good bedside manner that most doctors seem to forget that we are patients and not just a name and a number. Thank you Dr. Al-Wardi for the time spend with me as well as listening me.
