Dr. Padmini Nagaraj 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.

Accurate Diagnosis

Had no Problem getting appt. Find her very nice, Listens to your problem. One problem is her recepionist, NOT VERY NICE AT ALL! When you call she says she is going to pull your file and get it to the Doc but you never hear back like she tells you will. No Problem with DOC, BAD PROBLEM WITH HER RECEPTIONIST!

See Above.

Do not see this doctor

She has spread herself so thin she can't keep up with her patients. She didn't warn me of medication side effects and the abandoned my care. Her office manager is mean and always angry. They are overwhelmed, good luck - psychiatrists in the GNO are a crap shoot.
