Dr. Frasat Chaudhry has the following 2 specialties
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.
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 was surprised by the three reviews that I read about Dr. Chaudhry. My experiences on my office visits have been totally different. She spends time and listens to what I have to say. She did nerve conduction studies on hands, legs and feet herself, in the office. During the procedure she talked to me and was very friendly making the procedure go quickly. As soon as she enters the room, she smiles and asks me questions that lets me know that she remembers what we talked about previously. Dr. Chaudhry came to the hospital when I was admitted for vertigo and she is not my primary care physician. I would highly recommend her.
The front desk staff were very organized and kind. Dr Chaundhry not so much. When I asked a question about something she said she responded with, "Are in a medicine?" Makes you feel like you do not have any common sense and has no bedside manner. She raises her voice when she talks to you and talks down to you. She did not seem to listen to what I had to say and jumped to many conclusions about me which were all false. I told her that I deal with patients everyday as well and I would never treat them the way that she treated me.She scheduled me for an MRI that day... even though I told her that I may be pregnant. She said that an MRI is absolutely OK to get when you are pregnant. The imaging center said that it is definitely not OK to have an MRI if you are pregnant. I felt like Dr Chaundhry should have known that since she sends people to get MRI'S all the time (she is at a brain and spine center). I left there with no information and and will not be returning.
I will give her some credit... She ran a decent panel of bloodwork. But missed a serious neurological disease that was diagnosed by one of the top hospitals in the country (had to leave the state). I would be in a very bad state and disabled if I would have listened to her. She checked vitamin B12 without testing for MMA levels, she also does NOT do a full neuro exam in office.
Dr. Chaudhry is a very intelligent doctor. I'm quite certain she is fully capable within her profession. On a person level I found her (after 2 appointments with her) to be brusque, rude and quick to dismiss my concerns once she had formed an opinion prior to test results coming in. I will never return to this office. On my last visit while we waited for the assistant to schedule an MRI another older male doctor from the practice was having a meltdown (screaming and yelling) at his assistant because he needed to schedule an xray for someone RIGHT NOW. This entire office is very highly strung. I strongly recommend that you look elsewhere for neurological care.
