Dr. Sachidanand R Peteru has the following 3 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.

Good Doctor

I have been having depression for years. All these years all the doctors treated me as a mentally ill patient. This doctor is the one who knows what he is talking about and has very good knowledge about the medical illness as well. I was educated about life style, diet, pros and cons of all the psych drugs and also medical drugs. My primary doctor never cared about my psych drugs. This doctor also warned about the srug interactions and primaru doctor was also notified. I keep good faith in him. Since I started seeing him, I am very compliant with my meds and I did not go into a depressive episode. I strongly recommend this doctor
