Dr. Murali Maheswaran has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
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.
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.

Defined and Treated A Long-term Apnea Issue
Self-verified patient of Dr. Murali Maheswaran - Posted on July 23rd, 2018
I have suffered from Severe Obstructive, Central, and Mixed Apnea since prior to 1996 (my diagnosis was made when I finally had a whiff Apnea existed). Living with this issue has been extremely difficult. My apnea issues worsened over time. Since early 2002, other health issues have reared their ugly heads, too. I went from C-pap to V-pap, and now I'm on a V-pap ST with an upper pressure of 20. Dr. Mahi is thorough. He looks at the evidence and looks at the obvious. He's straight forward. . .tells you what you need to know, not what you want to hear. He is not afraid to admit to say "there may be more here than we see." If he is unsure about something, he digs deeper and checks into the "let's nail down what's really going on here." Dr. Mahi is not satisfied with let's do the band-aid; he gets down to "this is the issue and now we can work on the bottom line." His philosophy is we either fix it or -- if it can't be fixed -- take action to give the patient the best and longest living outcome possible. Dr. Mahi is not just satisfied with enough, he thinks about the patient and the long term. Dr. Mahi not only found my issue, he took action to make my quality of life one that I believe will be long-lasting. He will be with me in the fight because he cares.

Dr. Maheswaran is a wonderful doctor, my husband, Doug went to him and he listened to all that he need to tell him. Dr. Maheswaran then asked other questions and discussed what needed to be done. Doug needed a different kind of sleep study and that is what he got. Dr. Mahewsaran is a caring and professional doctor. He will tell you what you need to hear which may be different from what you want to hear. He is excellent and I highly recommend him.
