Specialties

Dr. Mahmood Dadvand 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.

Avoid at all costs. He will not help you

Avoid this Dr. At all costs. He is 72 and out of touch. Too set in his ways and wracked with preconceived notions and judgements. He's an old man way past his time of relevance and effectiveness

I left feeling worse and much more hopeless and frustrated

After I switched insurance I was left with limited options. I made an appointment with "Dr." Dadvand. It was a huge mistake. I had already been diagnosed by a different Psychiatrist and was only looking for someone to continue my treatment. After asking me to come with him, then telling me to return to the waiting room because he did not yet have my chart, He wasted 20 minutes asking me questions regarding information already available in my chart. Halfway through the appointment he asked me what time our appointment was scheduled for. He only addressed half of my concerns, refused to listen to me regarding prior treatment and medications, dismissed my involvement in my own treatment, rushed me out of the room and told me I was welcome to a 2nd opinion. This man, in my opinion, is a terrible professional. It is my personal opinion that he is too "experienced" and close-minded to truly help someone struggling with mental illness. After the appointment I spent 10 minutes crying in my car. Dr. Dadvand did the opposite of what is expected from a mental health professional, I left feeling worse and much more hopeless and frustrated.
