Specialties

Dr. Rubina Shakil has the following 3 specialties

  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • 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.

Dr Shakil has improved the quality of my life.

I absolutely trust Dr. Shakil's thoughtful and careful judgement, and I would absolutely recommend her to any friend or family member seeking psychiatric care. The office is clean and pleasant, her staff is courteous and professional, and Dr. Shakil takes the time to gain a thorough understanding of your health and background before giving a detailed explanation of her assessment and your treatment options.

We wanted her to see our child. She went above and beyond to give an appointment asap. Her investigation was thorough. She treated his condition effectively. In addition she had very good suggestions to handle our son's condition in the longer term. We are extremely satisfied and recommend her.

I love Dr. Shakil!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Shakil's for about 5 years now. She is extremely qualified and skilled in her knowledge of medications. She has always been kind and courteous to me. Her staff has always scheduled me appropriately and followed up with phone calls to confirm appointments. I believe she is willing, based on her experience, to assist her patients in a way that's best for them and their well being. I urge people to give her a chance. She will give you tools and meds that WILL help you. I adore her!

Do not go see this woman

I was in disbelief at how incredibly rude and impatient she was. She interrupted literally every time I attempted to answer her question. Clearly she is not in this profession for the patients. I see that she "specializes" in geriatric psychiatry... I shudder at the thought of her abrasive, borderline abusive approach to the elderly. This woman should not be in practice period. Terrible! If there was an option of negative stars, I would have selected it.
