Specialties

Dr. Jamal K Fawaz has the following 3 specialties

  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • 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.

He has changed my daughter's life!!!

Dr. Fawaz is an incredibly caring and honest psychiatrist, and wonderful with his knowledge of medications. He has changed my daughter's life after years of suffering with medications she doesn't need. He is straightening it all out and she is feeling like her old self again. It does a mother's heart good. He is wonderful and I can't thank him enough!

this doctor does not listen. he rushes you. he pre judges you, does not even try to see what is going on before making decisions on your treatment. he is an addiction therapist and does not like medicines. he did not seem to be interested or understand or care about my mental health . his recommendations were no different for the most part and the ones he made that he felt should be changed , he made without any knowledge of what was going on with me. people should be told he is not a mental health person that he is only a drug addiction doctor.....he makes me feel hopeless because I have a good counselor at brook lane, but this was the most ridiculous person I have ever met....
