Dr. Ijaz Ahmad 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.

DR, Ahmad, was Very kind and Very concerned about My condition and took his of seeing me, in all he is The BEST, I give him a 10 , I could not have met such a Very concered Docter, I am so Proud That he is My Docter,HÃ¨ is BestNeurolgist I couldhave found, I reccomend DR, Ahmad to My friend's and family.
Dr. Ahmad was my neurologist for years. At every visit, I always waited several hours past my scheduled appointment time in the waiting room, sometimes as many as 4 or 5 hours...at least when she finally called me back, I knew that meant he was already waiting for me in the room. He wanted to do an EEG at every visit. He never explained anything about them to me, why I needed them or what they showed if anything. Very gruff, rude. I had a very hard time understanding him, he had a very hard accent. The final straw came when I got mixed up and used the word handicapped instead of disabled...I have seizures and get mixed up sometimes...he interrupted me with his voice raised and began to tell me that I could walk, I had legs...I tried to explain that I knew this, I had just gotten my words confused but he wouldn't listen. His receptionist/nurse was horrified at how he was acting and I think she knew as we were leaving that we would not be coming back. Oh...and you're lucky if he spends four minutes in the room with you.
