Specialties

Dr. Rashmi B Halker Singh 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.

Find Another Doctor

She never told me she would not do any followup on the toxicity of the meds she was prescribing for me. It was only found out by accident by my PCP that the meds were damaging my liver and needed to be discontinued. When the Head of Neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic referred me to her, he told me she would do followups and blood tests, etc., to make sure the meds I was taking weren't damaging my liver or kidneys or heart, or whatever. She never did. If all you want is a doctor to prescribe meds, then she is ok. If you want a doctor to make sure the meds aren't hurting you, then don't waste your time with her and find another doctor.

Horrible Experience...DO NOT put yourself through that

Dr. Halker was terrible from the start and got worse. She was very disrespectful to the patient while he was in severe pain in the e/r. She admitted him for a week, but she NEVER ordered the tests that are recommended for his disease. One day, out of the blue and for no reason, Halker's nurse called and told the patient to stop taking the medication. Halker had never spoken to the patient about the medicine. When the patient was having breakthrough symptoms, it took Halker EIGHT DAYS TO RETURN THE CALL. We called every single day begging for help! About three weeks after the hospital visit, we noticed the patient was running out of pills. We went to the pharmacy and found out that Halker had written the prescription wrong! 4 pills per day x 30 days...she wrote for 60 pills! SHE WAS THE WORST DOCTOR we have seen in five years of dealing with this brain disease.

Dr. Halker was the fourth neurologist I have seen for treatment of my chronic migraines, and I was becoming discouraged after forty years of suffering and trying just about everything. Dr. Halker was extremely polite and professional. She was by far the most knowledgeable doctor I have seen with regard to migraines. She spent quite a lot of time with me and even modified her schedule to be sure that I had Botox treatment as soon as possible. As a result of her suggestions and treatment, I have been migraine free for the longest amount of time in years. I cannot thank Dr. Halker enough for all her help.

I would just like to thank Dr. Halker for her diagnosis and treatment of my life long daily suffering with chronic migraines. She was very personable and sympathetic to my particular situation and immediately treated me. Thank you Dr. Halker for what I am hoping to be a life changing experience. I have already referred a patient to you!

Not recommended

Dr. Halker was quite rushed during my appointment and acted annoyed when I asked questions. My first (and only) appointement only lasted 18 minutes. It was so rushed and she didn't review my files in advance so I don't feel she really got a good picture of my case. She also didn't leave me with a plan for the future, just mentioned a bunch of names of medications that I could take in the future if I wanted. No rationale for why the medications would be good for ME. I can get that info from the web.
