Specialties

Dr. Farrukh H Hashmi 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.

Very unhappy patient

If I could give him "0" stars I would. Dr. Hashmi acted cold and indifferent to me. I've been seeing him for over a year for medication management and have not been pleased. I don't think that he considers the chemistry balance in the brain when prescribing my medication. i think he's reckless in his prescribing practices. I have depression, he prescribed an anti-psychotic that screwed me up for a week and I only took two pills.Another time he gave me a seizure med. that's intended for epileptics, I lost 2 weeks of my life because I was so sedated I could not get out of bed. I can't trust him any more and plan on seeing some other Doctor 140 miles away if that's what it takes. My insurance says he's the only Doctor in my area that they will cover within 140 miles. DONT TRUST THIS MAN.....

Personal experience of care from Dr. Farrukh H Hashmi M.D.

This so-called psychiatrist is cold, impersonable, and is definitely homophobic and heterosexist... He treated me cruelly in 2003, with great indifference and non-compassionate treatment...with his insistence on extra high doses of two prescriptions which caused severe adverse reactions in which I had convulsions and extremely harmful reactions. It is from this experience that I highly recommend you stear clear of this malpractice-prone egotist!!!

Horrible excuse for a doctor

This doctor is one of the worst I've seen. He lied to me repeatedly, lied in my records about what was discussed and argued with me vigorously while misinforming me on a treatment I was interested in pursuing. Seeing this doctor was more than a waste of time, his lies and misinformation could have put my life in jeopardy had I not already done my own thorough research about the treatment I was seeking. Do not put your life or your health care in this man's hands.

Unnacountable: Charged "No show" for times SHE CALLED ME to reschedule around Hashmi's schedule modifications. will NEVER produce account information while I'm at an appointment.when inexplicable charges come due. Promises later but NEVER follows through. Hashmi seems unconcerned.
