Specialties

Dr. Mona Sazgar has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Doctor Mona Sazgar has been such a wonderful neurologist. She has always been there for me in my struggle with epilepsy, and in some of my most hardest of times. She has given me wonderful guidance on my medical decisions and had great knowledge all around on epilepsy and what is best for my specific situation. While she is very professional, she also has had a great way about her to be comforting and caring in the most difficult of times. I had very little faith in my last several of neurologists that I had seen over the years since first becoming diagnosed with epilepsy. Since having Doctor Sazgar I feel confident that I am in the best hands and I look forward to where I might be able to progress with her as my neurologist.

Best Doctor Ever!!!

Her amazing diagnosis, expertise, professionalism, and determination has downright given me my life back. My out of control temporal lobe seizures left me in a state of despair. Dr. Sazgar led her team in performing state of the art testing to identify the exact portion of my brain that was holding me back from mastering my skill set in computer science. After performing several electroencephalograms and other pre surgical evaluations, she was able to determine exactly where my medical issue was located. She explained to me the details of my issues in verbiage that I could actually comprehend and in the most compassionate way that any doctor could ever hope to do. I felt safe in her hands and so did my family.

Dr. Sazgar is so thorough. After 25 years of living with epilepsy, she is the first neurologist to actually address my options, beside just trying another medication. She plans on curing me and in the meantime, making my life more liveable! She is great!
