Dr. Prem S Parihar has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
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.
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.

Dr. Prem S. Parihar, a medical doctor who specializes in Neurology is without a doubt the most pathetic excuse for a doctor I have ever seen. I have been going to him for over a year now for my epilepsy, and regretfully it has taken me this long to realize his carelessness. A few months ago he prescribed me Ativan(Xanax); thinking this would help with the anxiety that came with taking my other medicine(Keppra), I didn't think twice about it. I just said, "sure I'll take it". For those who are like I was and do not know, Ativan turns you into a complete different person, makes you depressed, and has countless other harmful side effects. Dr. Parihar did not even think to inform me of these side effects until today's appointment with him (6 months after he prescribed it) because I informed him I was experiencing these side effects. But thanks for telling me now!! "Dr." Parihar.... This is just ONE of his MANY downfalls, so I recommend to anyone and everyone that likes being screwed by a so called "doctor" to pay Mr. Parihar a visit.
My wife came to this doctor almost 2 years ago under the recommendation of a very good neurologist who is a hospitolist and doesn't take patients in himself. My wife went into status epilepticus after never having had a seizure before. This doctor Dr. Parihar stated on our first visit that he would help my wife discover the root cause of her condition. This is while he was writing his notes on a napkin or some sort of scrap paper. He ordered an EEG and started prescribing medications. My wife was having focal seizures so he would play more with her medicine. My wife did have a reaction to one prescription and as soon as he took her off she had another seizure but while at work. He never ordered more testing only asking simple questions about how she felt. Then off to changing prescription amounts. Well my wife has had two more seizures at work and her employer requested a fitness for duty form to be filled out by her doctor and I must admit that what was provided wasn't a true fitness for duty form, but a job description /evaluation form. After Dr Parihar sat on this for a about three weeks he met with my wife and they agreed that she could go back to work and provided a letter to take to her employer. Then a few days later and without any consult with my wife sends another letter stating that he felt that she couldn't go back to work. His office was contacted by her employer and his office didn't verify if they were with Human Resources or not and provided the second letter where he states that he feels that she can't perform the functions of her job. This is a direct violation of FMLA and in the first letter he discussed diagnosis which is a direct violation of Hippa. Well now my wife's FMLA time is up and the employer request that she have a form signed by her doctor giving her 90 days to look for another position within her field and he refused to sign it. I failed to mention a few things that I feel important to bring up. First is that after the initial consult when he stated that he would help find the root cause he told me about 6 months ago that we may never know. The next is that I had to mention to the staff after our second visit that I didn't feel right bringing my wife to a doctor's office with trash cans not emptied in days and living and dead roaches in the examination rooms. He did fix both issues but he's a freaking doctor and should know that is not acceptable. I know that some will say that I have lost credibility by mentioning the trash cans and roaches and for those that I have I would encourage you to visit just long enough for him to pick his nose in front of you.
