Specialties

Dr. Mridula R Prasad 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.

I could NOT be any more pleased! :)

I have been a patient of Dr. Prasad's since 2001. I was 22 years old w/ a son when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I consider it a blessing to call her my neurologist. She is a very caring, sweet, and smart doctor. Dr. Prasad is always on top of new medicine and procedures. I had two or three appointments with other neurologists, and was pleased when I met Dr. Prasad. To Dr.Prasad I am a person...NOT a file number! (she even sent me flowers when I gave birth to my 2nd and 3rd children!!!)
