Dr. Gaby T Thai 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.

The office staff was good and I was seen by the doctor in no time. The doctor though, started off by referring me to another doctor even before she understood what my problem is. This is the same experience I had with 2 more doctors in UCI medical center in Irvine. They only seem to be interested in taking tests with no hypothesis as to what they were testing for, and to keep referring to people within the building, without what felt like much thought.Coming back to Dr. Thai, as soon as I went there even before she asked me about why I was there, she rudely said -"You dont seem to want to accept the diagnosis...". Since I had not got any diagnosis on the matter from any of the doctors I visited in UCI, I asked what the diagnosis was. To that she fumbled and said - "body pain..."! She repeated it and tried to justify why that was correct. I am sure after an MRI, all kinds of blood tests, ophthalmology tests (all which came back normal) and suffering from dizziness and body pain and losing peripheral vision for a few minutes. The diagnosis is - "body pain" and she is referring me to a ophtha-neurologist for it!Problem is that all doctors in this building are so specialized they are unable to look at the complete picture. Or just do not want to look at the complete picture.So here I am 3 months after my first episode of losing peripheral vision and suffering dizziness and body pain and spending $3000, with no diagnosis or treatment.I highly urge people to keep away from UCI and especially Dr. Gaby Thai
I had to take my husband to this Doc for 2nd opinion since we were not convinced with the diagnosis that the other neurologist had made. Our insurance had approved us to see this doctor (out of network) for 1 time only due to his HMO. As soon as she walked in, she said "I am supposed to see you one time only & feels like it is going to be too much work for me to go over all the (last 2 By the way) reports". Without even introduction or greeting, she had my husband sit next to her & started examining him. She treated us very badly while being sarcastic about us being unsatisfied with the initial diagnosis. We felt that she probably had some personal grudges against us. May be because she probably knew one of the doctors who had contributed making the initial diagnosis (Just a guess)!! By the way, the purpose of our visit was to know if she was in an agreement with the initial diagnosis. As a medical professional she should be able to accept the existence of differences in the opinions without being too personal.She kept on saying at least 3-5 times that we were making her work too much for one visit (or for too little money?) & she could have refused the service. She completely failed to empathize with the patient & rather attacked the personality of the patient making him feel that he was "asking for too much". While my husband was asking about the possible diagnosis she called us "bunch of overwhelmed people" although I had not asked her any single question. I believe that a patient has every right of being concerned about himself & ensure that all his questions are answered. After all, he really is dealing with a life & death situation & this lady did not make it ANY better for him!! He may be one of the many patients to her but he is the only one for someone
