Dr. Nirjaleshwar K Nikhar has the following 2 specialties
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.ttcqeayetrwczwezdueawsrsbdyr

Self-verified patient of Dr. Nirjaleshwar K Nikhar - Posted on May 3rd, 2018
Dr. Nikhar is the best doctor I have ever dealt with. He is thorough and genuinely cares for his patients. There are just some medical teams that seem to not show real interest in helping their patients but Dr. Nikhar is definitely not one of those and truly wants to help you. He is also honest and straight forward. His staff are friendly and professional. They are very nice and always seem they want to work with you and your schedule. Dr. Nikhar does have a wait list and I can definitely see why! Dr. Nikhar was highly referred by my internist and I'm glad I was able to see him.
