Dr. Nirmala Aryal 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.

I'm not that thrilled with my experience. I've had repeated tests already performed. During test, result would be given and next time I see her, she tells me my tests were normal. I had abnormal results on bloodwork that were not discussed. I did discuss with my GP who subsequently ordered additional testing and sent me to a specialist. I didn't get to talk so much during our initial visit. She seemed more interested in my headaches than anything. I don't think she knows half of what is wrong with me and doesn't seem like she "knows" me during my visits as she's not asking me questions about the symptoms that most bother me. I don't think she studied my chart ever. She's nice, but needs to listen more and spend more time. I also had an infection from a test.

excellent neurologist

Dr Aryal has been a great help to me. She is kind, knowledgeable and thoughtful, and I appreciate her no-nonsense focused approach. In my case, she was able to determine an accurate diagnosis quickly and patiently helped me find the medication that best treated my symptoms. I have a life now that I would have thought was impossible, before. I am so grateful and respect her tremendously.

Worst Experience Ever!!!! Should lose right to practice!!

Dr. Aryal was very rude and was not interested in my issues she was more interested in getting out the room. I provided feedback of how I felt she was not explaining things and her bedside manner and she instead of correcting got angry and stated she did not want to see me again. She should not even have a license because once you lose your compassion you have lost your ability to be a Great doctor!! I would not suggest anyone be treated so rude and insensitively. I genuinely needed someone to treat me and help me find my issues during my first visit I asked her what she thought could cause these symptoms her response " I don't know I'm not God" that comment speaks for itself!!

Mistreated and recklessly disregarded.

I had seen Dr Arayal at the ANI facility, in 2010 to 2012. I had an MRI of my back that showed problems she accurately diagnosed. However, I had problems with my legs and feet, numbness, pain etc. Dr Arayal carried an EKG test, and found nothing. But at the request of my PCP and myself for a skin biopsy to check for small fiber neuropathy, she exclaimed "you are not 80 yrs old" and dismissed treatment. 6 months later I had a biopsy and confirmed SFN. Dr Aryal is lazy & wasted my life. For what?
