Specialties

Dr. Karnail S Dhillon has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Everything a psychiatrist should be!

I recently started seeing Dr. Dhillon and I cannot really say enough positive things about him. He is friendly, easy to talk to, and genuinely cares about his patients. My first appointment with him was just for med refills, but he asked if I minded him doing a full evaluation for his records. I had time that day so I agreed and felt that a reevaluation would be good just to confirm diagnoses I had previously been given (which he did feel were accurate). He did raise some concerns about the combination of medications I was on. This is something that I had run into on other occasions when listing my medications for other doctors so I knew the concerns were valid and asked him what we could do to safely make adjustments. He gave me his opinions, but still allowed me to have a say in how we would go about it. But the end of the appointment, I was comfortable with the plan we had come up with and very impressed that he took the time to really get to know me as a patient and helped me make decisions to further improve my mental and overall health. I will say this: if your goal is simply to try and get your hands on mass amounts of addictive prescription drugs, find another doctor because Dr. Dhillon won't have any of that. He cares about his patients' wellbeing for not only the short term, but long term as well. He is not a pill pusher and wants to make sure people are being prescribed only what they need and what is safest for them.

Unprofessional

Dr Dhillon was not willing to suggest any other medications for my some once I told him about my concerns with the current medications. When I called to schedule an appointment today he told me I had a past due bill which I wasn't aware of. When I tried to make arrangements to pay he asked how I was going to pay for the meds if I couldn't pay for the visit! I am outraged! I already wasn't feeling great about him but now I will NEVER go back and I will make sure that others know how he treats his patients. I have been going to him for 2 years now but that all ends today!

Please...I beg of you...seek another psychiatrist

I have recently been seeing Dr. Dhillon for the past six months for my 12 year old daughter. The only reason we went to him in the first place was because he was under our insurance plan and he was accepting new patients. I feel so wounded after our last appointment and was absolutely astounded when this man started yelling at me not one time but three times during a 20 minute visit...I had to appease him several times for him to gain his composure. He threw down his pen on his desk and yelled at me. Not only was I shocked, but then he has misdiagnosed my daughter and absolutely refuses to see anything other than what it wants to see. My daughter is scared to death of him. He has a very heavy accent and his very difficult to understand. He does have a very scary god-like persona that I would beg of you to stay clear of if you do not want to become dependent on this man. It's time I sought better professional care for my daughter and get out of this dangerous man's way. Not only that but he is impossible to reach when needed for emergencies. I had six different numbers for him alone... and two worked with only a call back message.

Rude employees, unprofessional psychiatrist.

One of his employees( the office manager of all people) violated the HIPPA laws by listening in to my entire conversation with him(in which I discussed briefly how frustrated I was that his employees change peoples appointments without telling them, and then accept no responsibility for it) then, I’m not even kidding, she stormed into the office and starting berating me, using derogatory language, calling me a liar and severely invading my personal space. I actually had to gently shove her aside to leave the office, as dr. Dhillon sat there dumbfounded, doing absolutely nothing to reprimand an employee’s disgusting actions. He also never prescribes the correct amount of medication, which is a problem in and of itself even if my scheduled appointments were being kept, which they are not. So he’s also putting lives in danger with his obvious inability to count, or hire competent employees.

Kind and compassionate

After reading reviews prior to my first appointment, I seriously considered canceling and seeking another doctor. Ultimately, I felt I should give it a chance. I found Dr. Dhillon to be exactly the opposite of what others had described and I have a very difficult time understanding how it can be true. Dr. Dhillon was nothing but kind and compassionate and a true professional. After assessment of my situation, he provided sound advice and amazing insight to help me begin the journey to good health. I did not have much contact with the office staff, but what interaction I did have, I found to be very courteous and accommodating. It was only one visit, but yes, first impressions mean a lot. I look forward to partnering with Dr. Dhillon to reach my goals.
