Dr. Peter Alahi 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.

Very unsatisfied. Made an appointment 3 months out. Was told they would make a call for a reminder when appointment is closer. I get called the day of 2 hours before my appointment. Was working out of town that day couldn't make appointment. Always a hassle to get medicine refilled. Ran out of medicine on a Friday. Called them Thursday left a message. Friday. Left a message. Monday. Left a message. Been without my meds for 4 days. Finally on Tuesday got through. Wanted to make an appointment and get a refill. They informed me that I was terminated due to missing an appointment and can't refill my meds. Left me out to dry. Now scrambling to find a new psychiatrist. Very dissatisfied felt was unfairly treated wouldn't recommend anyone to go there after this whole fiasco.

This guy is a joke. He misdiagnoses which can cause a client much harm. He is arrogant and really doesn't care about his patients. Downright mean if his patients don't meet up to his expectations. He is a joke,

I felt like Dr. Alahi listened to me & included my thoughts in my med management. I like him and I like that I always felt "in control" of my treatment plan - he is part of the team that keeps me well.
