Specialties

Dr. Faiq A Hameedi 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.

Horrible

These 5 star reviews are a joke and/or fake (relatives?!). This man does not care you wait over 40 minutes after work/commute as it is 'routine,' then sees you for around 15 mins. While you are trying to explain your health issues, he is playing with his phone and opening/reading mail uninterested.. A controlled refill was 3 days late, no response. He couldn't care less if he tried. This is a mill and he will tell you to get another MD if you object to any of above. Stay away.

This Doctor is excellent and really pays attention. He doesn't just "throw" medicine at you. He carefully and knowledgeably decides together with he patient what will be the best option. He also highly recommends therapy in combination with medication.

Best in Westchester

Dr. Hameedi takes his time with patients, and from conversations in the waiting room I think his other patients are as pleased as I am. I suffer from depression and after a few months treatment I feel so much better. The waiting room is always clean and peaceful. The office tends to be very warm in the winter, I don't think the office does not have control over the thermostat. The wait time is shorter than what I've experienced at other Psychiatrists offices. Overall, I think the Doctor is one of the BEST Psychiatrists.
