Dr. Mohammad Fouladvand has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

His lack of concern may have ruined my life

I was first referred to Dr. Fouladvand for dizziness that occurred spontantusly and was aggravated by body movement and certain visual stimulus. His inisital evaluation seemed thorough enough, but he struck me as being underconcerned. Having dealt with dizziness before, I asked for a referral for vestibular therapy, which he told me flatly would not help. He told me it would just go away and to come back in six months if it did not go away. I was back 5 months later because the symptoms, after improving for some months, began to get dramatically more severe. I came with FMLA papers which he would not sign beacause he told me my symptoms were not serious, were all in my head, and would go away when I wanted them to. Although he gave me a refarral for vestibular therapy and rehabiliatative psychology at the Rusk Institute, he had no idea that it takes 3-5 months to get the rehabilitative psychology evaluation. I waited for 3 months while my symptoms got worse and worse only to find out that Rusk would not work with my insurance company for the rehabiliative psychology that he thought was the most important thing for me to do -- having left me go for months when I could have been looking for some place else with a psychological specialization for dizzy patients (and I have not found any(. Meanwhile, my vestibular therapist at Rusk (who was wonderful) did find a vestibular-occular reflex deficit that was treatable with therapy and suspected vestibular migraine, for which she referred me to another neurologist that I had to wait 6 agonizing weeks to see so that I could get a medication prescription. Unfortunately, the first medication did not work, and my eyes continued to become unbearably sensitive and dysfunctional. I dreaded going back to Dr. Fouladvand but couldn't find another neuro-opthamologist. In my final visit with Dr. Fouladvand, which was a desperate effort to get help with my vision, which was continuing to deteriorate, he again scoffed that it was all anxiety and that I should get a different job, clearly not aware that I had been unable to work for 3 months because my eyes were too sensitive to use a computer for more than a few minutes a day--if at all. I blame this doctor for being underconcerned when my condition was less severe and letting me fall into a nightmare of discomoft and disability that I can only pray will end when I find the right combo of medication and therapy.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
One Star

Beyond unprofessional. Rushed through appointment. Answered questions with he's a very busy doctor and has many other patients. Answered requests for clarification by none of his other patients have trouble understanding him. Rushed through an eye exam in under 30 seconds, dismissed other doctor's findings as flukes and blamed me, but offered to run an MRI just in case this is an aneurism. His only concern is letting you know just how smart he is and just how dumb you are and will go to humiliating depths to prove his point.

I never trust a doctor right off the bat. Fouladvand got the diagnosis, understood my fears from Trigeminal nerve pain. He explains things perfectly.
