Specialties

Dr. Mahmoud E Shehata 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.

One Star

Every doctor I have seen since leaving this doctor has been in disbelief over how I was treated. I was given inappropriate medications due to his ties to the drug companies. Ended up in the psych hospital, then got a new doctor who is wonderful. It is worth the wait to get in somewhere else where you can be properly treated and given compassion.

My first appointment should have been my last, but it's hard to find a psychiatrist with availability. While in a session, he excused himself to take a phone call. And all he cares about is the insurance! Before every appointment he goes over it! Because my work schedule changed, I had to cancel an appointment. He is not in on Tuesday, but I left a message on the machine that I wouldn't be there on Wednesday. When I did see him next, he charged me a $60 "no show" fee. My appointments usually only cost me $20!!!! I gave him 24 hours notice and he charged me three times what I would have paid. He doesn't remember anything about you, because he's just rushing people in and out. Also, the last two times I went to see him their was no receptionist.

wow!

This guy is a piece of work. He is obsessed with money. Seriously obsessed. That is why he can get you in so quick, because to him you are just a dollar sign. If you are looking for someone who is caring and understanding, look somewhere else. If you are looking for drugs, lots of drugs and nothing else, sure go ahead. But you won't feel good getting them, and you probably wont feel good about any follow up care period. I've seen him pause a session just to ask the secretary if the patient paid her copay. Yeah, in the middle of his session. He is rude, hard to understand, and probably the most impersonal person you have met. He probably has a good heart, and he can get you in to see him really fast. So if you are in a bad place and need help immediately, you could see him. But I'm betting that you will switch your care pretty fast.
