Dr. Omar A Ghausi 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.

The best neurologist I have encountered

Dr. Ghausi is an amazing neurologist. He takes his time, explains different medical treatments, even listens to the patients ideas! He's a rare find in this day an age when most Doctors are out to make a fast dollar. He seems to genuinely care, follow ups are easy.

The office needs a new receptionist or send her to consumer relations classes. Patients come in and are ill, no time to deal with rudeness.

Outstanding and rare these days!

Dr. Ghuasi is one of the very few doctors I have come across that listens and cares. He does not rush you with questions fired from a pistol to get to the next patient or give you 5 minutes to talk and then spends the remainder of the allotted time talking down to you. He meets you halfway instead of speaking in Dr.-speak or coming down to your level and getting nothing done. Out of the many doctors I have had, Dr. Ghausi truly is tied for first place. My only complaint is that I cannot have him for a primary care doctor...that would be awesome! I have suffered from migraines multiple times a week forever. Because we worked through previous treatments and he listened to what was going on, 'we' narrowed down to two potential medications. The first one was the answer. Of course, it is the expensive med but that is just my own luck of course. :) I have no more migraines. The final key note! If he does not know the answer, he actually goes and researches it! How many doctors do that now days!?!? Instead of running you through multiple treatment plans costing you pain and a lot of money on repeat visits and different medications, he does his homework and comes back with what he found and provides input and ASKS YOU what you think and whether you should both do more research or try the solution he has found. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this doctor. I struck gold as I had just moved to San Diego and he was the first neurologist I tried.
