Dr. Johan E Samanta 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.

I would give Dr. Samanta TEN STARS if it was possible for his SKILL and his thoughtful, reassuring approach to treating my severe case of hemifacial spasm with Botox. I suffered with this debilitating condition for 13 years before going to see Dr. Samanta. I also had several horrible experiences with other doctors using Botox that caused me to lose the focus in my left eye for weeks and my mouth to droop and drool when I tried to eat. From my first treatment with Dr. Samanta, the results were ASTONISHING!!!!! He has changed my life!!! I finally look 'normal' again, after years of being disfigured, and I no longer suffer with the social anxiety that my severe facial tremors caused. I am deeply grateful Dr. Samanta. He has miraculously treated my tremors with Botox for over 2 years now. I hope that my testimony gives others with hemifacial spasm the encouragement to see Dr. Samanta and try Botox before resorting to surgery.
Dr. Johan Samanta injected me with botox in the wrong place and or too much. The results were not being able swallow, hospitalized, had to be put on a feeding tube directly into my stomach. I was on that feeding tube for 8 months. Dr. Samanta had no remorse. Never came to see me in the hospital. He had his receptionist call me and wanted me to come into the office. At that time I was sitting on the couch attached to a feeding tube pole that looked like a IV pole. There was no way I could get in a car and go to his office. So much for the Hippocratic Oath.
