Specialties

Dr. Jatinder P Babbar has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Disrespectful, blames you for problems

This man refused to help me, explain my diagnosis, tried to push another diagnosis on me, made no adjustments to my education, let me suffer for two years while blaming my psychiatric problems on other issues, made me feel like I was making up my symptoms, suggested I was just using him to get drugs and needed to work on my skills rather than consider medication changes. I have never had a worse experience with a doctor of any kind in the entirety of my life

Worst psychiatrist I could ever imagine

He is rude, unhelpful, passes blame onto client, unwilling to try new or different medications, tells you your diagnosis is meaningless, and treats you with no respect. I suffered for years while he sat back and blamed me. Find another doctor and spare yourself the agony.
