Specialties

Dr. Ritu Chandak 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.

This hospital has the worst rude staff who try to insult and terrorise people. Dr Chandak has no idea and I asked her do u care what happens in your department, she said NO. Avoid her and her hospital at all cost.

If Only She Saw Patients Outside the Hospital Setting!

Dr. Chandak is the only psychiatrist I have ever encountered whom I did not want to strangle &/or request that his/her license be revoked. She was thorough, patient, respectful and not at all condescending, listened carefully to my questions, concerns & description of my situation and made thoughtful, responsive suggestions and also warned me of potential difficulties and pitfalls. I consider myself extraordinarily fortunate to have had Dr. Chandak assigned to me during my stay at the Christ Hospital Voluntary Psych Unit. And I think it is a terrible loss to me and other people who cannot find a psychiatrist who is actually helpful (or even just not detrimental) to patient's well-being, because she does not have a private practice outside the hospital.
