Specialties

Dr. Ninith V Kartha 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.

A truly great doctor

Dr. Kartha has done the botox injections I get every three months for my migraine for the past three years. I'm not talking about two or three shots to bolster one's ego here. Definitely not. This involves over thirty injections in my head and neck. It's not any fun, but Dr. Kartha does a great job making it as quick as possible with as little pain as can be managed. We've worked out a routine that works well for me, and that's what she does every time. She's got a great bedside manner, and is always friendly and professional. I can't even imagine letting someone else do the injections.

I wouldn't recommend her

She acted like I was stupid and was not open minded about treatment options. She wanted me to go to four other doctors as if she didn't know what to do to help me.

Unacceptable patient service

My daughter, a college student drove 2 hours for an appointment with Dr. Kartha and was late because she got lost. Dr. Kartha was not accommodating in trying to squeeze my daughter in for the appointment. They were not able to reschedule an appointment for 3 months. Her lack of compassion and unwillingness to make accommodations is just unacceptable!!!!
