Specialties

Dr. Irfan A Handoo 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.

Strongly Recommend--From A Doctor Who is His Patient

I am a cardiologist who has been struggling with depression and anxiety for over the past 10 years since I was in medical school. As a doctor, I am pretty critical of other doctors and I have seen countless psychiatrists over the years . Dr. Handoo is by the far the best psychiatrist I have ever seen in the Kansas City area. He took the time to go through my history and came up with a medication regimen that finally has my depression in full remission for the first time in many years. I can tell he cares about his patients and he always took the time to listen. I have been to psychiatrists at the Mayo Clinic and Mass General in Boston, and I would rank Dr. Handoo up there with some of the top psychiatrists I saw there. He has helped my career and my marriage and I can't thank him enough. I now recommend him to my own patients.

Fantastic!

Dr. Handoo is the best psychiatrist I have ever had. He knows what he's talking about, cuts to the chase, and knows when someone is trying to bullsh*t him to get controlled substances. (Sorry, folks!) He is a great doctor, at a great location, in a great office. I highly recommend Dr. Handoo.

BRILLIANT DOCTOR

After having seen numerous psychiatrists over the years, I have finally found one I can trust and relate to in Dr. Handoo. Dr. Handoo is very knowledgeable and thanks to his efforts, my depression is finally in full remission after 20 years. I can tell he truly cares about his patients and he always takes time to listen to me. He has made a tremendous difference in my life and I can't describe in words how much he has done for me. I had heard about him from my family doctor and he has a strong reputation in Kansas City as one of the best psychiatrists in the area.
