Dr. Farzana Nanavati 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.

The best neurologist!

Dr Nanavati is a patient, knowledgeable, and down to earth neurologist. After seeing upwards of 30 doctors, some of which spent very little time with me, it was refreshing to see that there is still at least one good doctor left in this area. She spent almost an hour going over my symptoms, possible causes, and courses of treatment. I don't normally write reviews but I felt it necessary to give this doctor the praise she deserves. So, if you are looking for a good neurologist, I would HIGHLY recommend paying a visit to Dr Nanavati.

She is a wonderful neurolgist. We travel from another state, because we find her to be kind, attentive, professional. She takes time with patients and works with you. The building they are in is not the best, but it does not effect their work (although I hear they are moving to new spaces in the future.)
