Dr. Jyotsna Nair has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent 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.

Good for prescription refills only

She sat and stared at us for 5 minutes asking how my daughter is doing. Then says okay. ... Okay what? Oh, this was our cue to leave. Very awkward. She seems like a lethargic person in general.

Relaxed and to the Point

After reading the first review I was very unhappy about my child being scheduled to see Dr. Nair. I was pleasantly surprised to find she was compassionate and focused and that she engendered my child's trust with her direct and pointed questions. I thought I knew what was going on but Dr. Nair elicited things I hadn't heard of. She offered what insight she had to the issues, suggested a plan, answered my child's questions, and committed with my child to the plan. There was no impression of being rushed but things flowed naturally and quickly. The appointment was 1/2 hour late but I think that's a reflection of the Burrell bureaucracy, not the doctor.

unpleasant to visit

I take my child to Dr Nair for medicine only. She agreed with the diagnosis by the psychologist, so she's only good for the prescription. As a doctor, she is quite bad, particularly with "bedside manner." She asks silly questions that don't get to the real issue at all, and her desk is so cluttered that you can barely see her face. There is no connection with the patient either. My child can't stand her, but there are so few choices in town. She is also extremely late with lame excuses (30 minutes average, sometimes longer).
