Specialties

Dr. Muhammad K Arshad has the following 4 specialties

  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • Neurology

GREAT PHYSICIAN AND GOOD HOSPITAL

I wholeheartedly agree with the good reviews this doctor has received. He is great with elderly patients and very responsive to families. Our experience with care of my elderly aunt at Seaside Behavioral Center was much more pleasant than the one we had at another facility earlier this year.

BEST ONE

Dr Arshad recently provided care to my mother in law at a private psychiatric hospital. She was initially seen by his colleague who we met but our questions were not properly addressed. W e called Dr Arshad to express our concerns. Dr Arshad responded promptly and spoke to us in a very professional manner. He met us next day in person. We were very imprssed by his concern, compassion and knowledge . He communicated with us regularly and gave us all the options as to what we could do to help my mother in law. He is one of the few psychiatrists in town who specializes in care of elderly. In our opinion he is the best.

Five Stars

My mother was recently treated at a local hospital where was hospitalized because of her progressuve dementia . She almost lost her life as a result of her illness prior to her hospitalization . Dr Arshad called me and my two sisters who also live out of town as do I . His calls and regular updates regarding my mother's treatment at the hospital were source of great comfort to us . We went to see our mother when she was still at the facility . Dr Arshad took time to meet us on a Sunday and gave us very clear idea as to what we had to do help our mother . Dr Arshad , along with his great staff at the hospital addressed our concerns and answered our questions . We finally decided to place our mother in a nursing home . We are grateful for the care my mother received at the hospital .

SAVED OUR FAMILY

Dr Arshad saw me after I was referred to him from my attorney following a serious injury at work . I could not find any psychiatrist in town to accept me as a patient. My injury and its effects on my physical , emotional life and my family have been devastating . I was at brink of giving up on my life . Dr Arshad has provided me and my family with tremendous care . He has helped us with extensive paper work , fought for me to get initially workman compensation benefits and then social security. I don't believe any other professional in New Orleans would have done what Dr Arshad has done for us. His kind word, encouraging feedback ,wisdom and compassion keeps us going. We would encourage any of our friends and family to see this amazing physician when they are in need. I hope Dr Arshad reads this comments and knows what I said I meant and we truely appreciate his care and treatment .
