Specialties

Dr. Mahmoud M Wahba 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.

Demanded cash in his Physicians office

This Dr. asked me for cash in his Physicians office..he was demanding about it and this was my first visit. When I told him I only had checks or credit card he looked disappointed but let me pay the woman at the front desk. It was clear he wanted the cash to be paid to him not the woman at the front desk. He also said some inappropriate things in my opinion.

Money issues rule this practice

I have a lot of concerns with this doctor. I wait on average an hour for my scheduled appointment. The front office does not have any type of sound barrier into the lobby. While I sit there for an hour, I can hear every conversation and phone call that goes on in the front office. Including patient names, medications, etc. which seems like this set up would be a major HIPA violation. Front office staff is very nice and I think doing the best with what she has to work with. This practice is really focused on the money not the patient. Each time I've met with this doctor we spend more time discussing how insurance companies are putting the squeeze on psychiatrist and how he is changing his fees yet again. When I started seeing him I paid my large copay, then shortly thereafter he told me I needed to pay an additional $30 cash on top of my co-pay at each appointment as an office fee. Between what my insurace pays, my co-pay, and the additional office fee he should be making $850/hour. That's a pretty high billing rate. I'm sorry insurance has put the squeeze on him but it is very intimidating to be sitting in a doctor's office asking for mental health help and to feel like you are getting hustled to see how much cash is in your purse. To say the least, I am looking for a new doctor.

One Star

He is greedy, and I really feel he do not care about his patients. He knew I was still having issues, he never offered to change medication. He said there wasn't much out there to treat my condition. I go to a new doctor told him I was still having issues, he immediately changed my dosage, within two days I felt better.

This doctor is a quack!

This doctor does not accept insurance, cash only basis.Make sure to get a receipt for your payment! Your appointment times don't matter, you will sit up to a hour waiting. His staff is not very responsible when it comes to calling in refills. Example, they are out on vacation for a week in which your meds will run out during that time. Told to call in the week before their vacation to get it done, did so on a Tuesday, and was never done!Discover this fact when you go to pick up your meds and then you cannot get ahold of anyone. He will also keep you on medication longer than you should be just to keep milking you out of your money and not really trying to help you. It's sad when you have a limited amount of income, and are trying to recover from opiate addiction. He has you at his mercy, and doesn't care for his patients. Just cares about making money and keeping you hooked.
