Dr. Muhammad N Shamsi has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Went to see the doctor last year after going through three or four providers in a couple years receiving bad care was looking forward to working with him but he was very uncaring didn't listen prescribing medications for things that I did not have liked for mood disorders I was put on Depakote and gained 20 pounds at the end he had asked me if I had tried one or two other medications and one of them had threw me into a deep depression in the beginning which was lithium and then he said looks like I will have to do ACT electroconvulsive therapy when I had told other people of this story other providers and friends and all they were astonished and disgusted he does not care he's all about the bottom line he only cares about himself the only people I will miss or the staff they were awesome my therapist was a joke her name is Danielle and stay away from her I recently was reviewing my insurance claims from last year and it turns out I'm at my out of pocket max and they owed me $385 and didn't bother telling me and when I have kept that on their books as a credit I haven't been there in 5 months and if I hadn't found this mistake on my insurance it would still be sitting there on my old account stay as far away from this practice as you can they are a joke it is very you can help one person then I feel good
He had his back to me while he was asking questions about medicine I was taking, which I already gave information to his therapist two weeks before my session. I felt that he was ill prepared and felt demeaned. I was making statements and he brushed me off and said we will talk about it next time. He prescribed a medicine I had a bad reaction to and removed me from all medicine which gave me seratonin withdrawal. He told me to call him a few days later and didn’t return my call until I spoke to receptionist and told her I was really sick. He then wanted me to pay 70 dollars for a phone call lasting seven minutes. I called to tell him I was still very sick and he told me he was with his family and do not blame him for my illness or burn bridges. That made me more agitated. Instead of calming me he was arguing with me. I feel with him as being a psychiatrist he should be a better listener. My opinion of him is he is more interested in money than patients well being. I do not recommend him. He made me see his therapist twice before I could see him. What a terrible experience!
