Specialties

Dr. Raja S Abbas 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.

  • 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.

I have depression and Dr Abbas talked to me about TMS. At first I did not want to start it. Then I thought why not Then I started. The tech (Bushra) for TMS is just a great lady. She really cares about you, She has a great heart. I am almost done my treatment's and I will miss her greatly. She talks to you and time just flies by. Dr. Abbas, Bushra, and Connie our great people. I would recommend them Highly.

I would highly recommend Dr Abbas for psychiatric care. I recently took a geriatric family member to see him. Even though she has dementia and couldn't offer him much information,he was right on target. Good information for me, good information for her even though she won't remember it. He helped me to help her.
