Specialties

Dr. Niku Singh 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.

Five Stars

Dr. Singh has great empathy without the condescending walking on egg shells most psychiatrists exhibit, he actually uses humor! He keeps up to date with the latest medications and is an expert in the biological mechanisms of mental illness while still strongly supporting the need for therapy. Dr. Singh has helped me enormously over the last several years.

First visit

Dr. Singh is the consummate professional. He "got" me right off the bat and an action plan is in place to start beating back my depression. I feel very confident that his judgment is excellent, his "pedigree" certainly is, and I liked him very much. I gave him five stars for follow-up just on the assumption that will be so--there is nothing to follow up just yet.
