Specialties

Dr. Himanshu R Patel 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.

Caring Professional

Dr. Patel is the psychiatrist for my daughter. The VA Health Care System is very fortunate to have doctor Patel on their staff. I have gone to many visits with my daughter and I must say that he presents the presence of a caring doctor who wants the best for his patients.

No Pill Pusher Here

One of the many things I like about Dr. Patel is he reviews your medications at every visit and discusses their affects/effects with you. He prescribes accordingly and tries not to over prescribe whenever possible. He has a very nice bedside manor but I thing his initial diagnosis of me was off. He thought I was suffering with situational depression which I may have been, but I also have a lifetime history of major depressive disorder. We are on track now and he is helping me quite a bit.It has nothing to do with his skill but I would like to add, he is very attractive and dresses very professionally.
