Specialties

Dr. Muhammad Dawood 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

Rude, judgemental, unprofessional. I have never had a worse experience with any medical professional. He should be removed from practice. He has no business interacting with patients in distress.

I think Dr. Dawood is a very friendly Dr., who seems to care about me as a patient. My problem is I'm afraid to tell him any of my OCD things because I'm afraid of being jinxed. I've had OCD my entire life. The Dr. is nice though, and seems knowledgeable.

Not a good choice

Took dangerous risks with my medication. Not educated enough on medications. I called to ask him about a new medication potentially not being a good mix with what I take and he told me I should just ask my pharmacist. He rushes through appointment and doesn't really take into mind what you have to say.
