Specialties

Dr. Ramarao Makkena 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.

Great psychiatrist with children. The staff is wonderful and caring although there is only one person doing all the work she is polite, understanding, caring and always goes above and beyond to help with what I need. Getting a hold by phone is difficult at times, but I always get a returned call. Definitely recommend.

I feel more anxious when seeing this MD. He spends no time with the patients, bedside manner, eye contact is very poor. He is very quick to rush you out, cuts you off when speaking and gives short, hurried answers. I always leave feeling worse, like I am an obvious waste of his time. Do not recommend.
