Dr. Riffat N Qureshi has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

My daughter was given an appointment time & date with Dr Qureshi, when she was released from the Florida Center for Behavioral Health, where she had received excellent care. Upon arriving at her appointment time & date, we were told she in fact did NOT have an appointment, the receptionist yelled at my daughter & I that he takes these appointments & the people never show up, so he doesn't put them down until the patient calls him themselves to say 'I'm coming'. I repeatedly asked if my daughter had an appointment at this time & day, he was angry & kept saying 'no, no, she can not be seen today', 'she does not have an appointment', etc. We left the office feeling very overwhelmed, as this has NEVER happened to us before (to leave a hospital with a set appointment & then to be told AT that appointment that you have no apt). It was a very odd, very confrontational experience. IF Dr Qureshi is a good psychiatrist we wouldn't know, because her office staff is not professional, not courteous, & was very offensive to me & my daughter. Will never recommend Dr Qureshi or anyone in her office.
This doctor tried to keep me in a facility on the grounds that she thought I was manic, negating the fact I wasn't a harm to myself or anyone else. She also did not evaluate me by asking clinical questions; she merely asked demographic questions. There was a horrible language barrier and I could tell she didn't understand what I was telling her. She's just horrible. I would find someone else.
