Specialties

Dr. Prasanth Manthena has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • 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.

AVOID THIS PSYCHO AT ALL COSTS!! I HAD 2 APPTS WITH HIM AND BOTH TIMES ALL HE DID WAS TALK ABOUT HIS OWN 2 KIDS AND THEIR DISABILITIES AND HOW HARD HIS LIFE IS. THEN WHEN HE ASKED ME WHAT LEVEL OF FATIGUE I HAD BEEN FEELING SINCE OUR LAST VISIT (HE'S A SLEEP SPECIALISTS), I SAID, "I'M STILL REALLY TIRED ALL THE TIME." AND HE SAYS IN A SARCASTIC TONE, "OH YOU'RE TIRED? I HAVE PATIENTS WORKING 3 JOBS AND YOU'RE TIRED?!" THEN I TIRED TO ASK 2 QUESTIONS AND OUR OF BLUE HE GOT ALL FRAZZLED, SAID HE COULDN'T ANSWER THEM (BUT RAN OUT OF THE ROOM 4 TIMES DURING MY VISIT TO ANSWER HIS CELL PHONE), THEN CAME BACK IN, CALLED ME A HYPOCHONDRIAC (IN FRONT OF MY MOM -- SHE WAS THERE BECAUSE I WAS TOO SICK TO DRIVE MYSELF TO THE APPOINTMENT.) WE GOT UP AND LEFT. THE MAN NEEDS TO HAVE HIS LICENSE REVOKED ASAP BEFORE HE HURTS SOMEONE. THE HE NEEDS TO GO TO THERAPY/REHAB HIMSELF.

how did this dr. get such a high rating from previous patient. this dr was one of the most impatient, hot headed people i ever met. yes, he crunches data like a math whiz, but runs thru it like the indy 500 and gets upset if you ask him to repeat it, i could go on and on, but i think you get the idea
