Specialties

Dr. Safdar I Chaudhary has the following 2 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.

    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.

Great diagnostic ability and was the first psychiatrist that presribed the correct medication for me that helped me. Also I could trust him not to prescribe me something that would get me addicted to any prescription drug. He is warm and compassionate also.

I Can Be Treated Poorly Closer to Home...

I made an appointment w/ the Doctor over the phone. I gave my insurance information at that time. I drove over an hour to get to an office/cathedral in the middle of no where. When I arrived I was rudely pointed to the office staff that then informed me that I would be paying 200 and something dollars for the visit. I said, "Even with my insurance?" "We don't accept your insurance." I was told by a young woman who's very snooty attitude was something like a character form The Hills reality TV show.... that I don't like. I stopped and started to pull out my bank card and said, "Why didn't you inform me on the phone?" I was told that it was my responsibly to check w/ my insurance provider prior the visit to see if they were covered. I never had a problem w/ any other Medical provider prior to this visit, and I was unaware that this was the policy... because no one informed me when I made the appointment. I put my card back in my purse and said, "Never mind then." And I left. See, I have a superiority complex too. I feel no more or less superior than anyone else. And when I am paying over $200 for a Dr. visit, or any service, I expect to feel welcome and not like I am an intruder. And with the grander of the facility, I would have thought upon arrival that I was in for a spa day and not a bad attitude. People go to a medical professional because they need to resolve their issue(s)... not to feel as a burden to others. So even though this Dr. was highly recommended, the building and staff told me I was embarking on an ego trip that may just leave me w/ a persecution complex and that was too expensive for me to chance. There are a lot of rude staff in Dr.'s offices but this one took the cake. So when I read the review other than this, I decided to go ahead and write one of my own. I have my own issues. I'm not paying for theirs-with or without insurance.

Though his office staff is untrained, Dr. Chaudhary is a very capable doctor....except the day I was there he got angry because he was running an hour late and kicked a suicidal person out of his office for asking why (when we were all wondering). I feel sorry because this very sick person now has no one to help them when the doctor was treating them turned his back on them too. I hope they are ok and didn't do anything to hurt themselves. Even though I thought he was a good doctor, I won't be going back there.
