Dr. Sailaja P Allanki 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.

First appointment was horrible, She was in her office with the door open as I watched her sit at her desk then a colleague went inside her office. I waited 40 minutes before she called me into her office. I should of walked out immediately. I left her office angry, confused, more depressed and thoughts of suicide. She does not listen or show any interest in her patients. I have serious other medical conditions and she prescribed new medication that interferes with these conditions. BREATHING
-late to EVERY single appointment I had with her -wanted to change medicine immediately upon seeing her despite me doing well for years on the regimen I was on, but two months later when I finally decided I would give her recommendation a try, she was suddenly against it. -takes no individual traits into consideration
I have seen her since 2005 and until this year have never been so frustrated with a health care provider. Every appointment I felt as if it was the first time we were meeting and like we had to go through why I had started seeing her in the first place. I felt that you did have to wait very long to see her and then spent very little time at your appointment. She was not easily accessible and did not return messages that were of urgent nature in a timely fashion. Very resistant in starting me back on my medications that I had been previously on and that had worked for my condition after I had my child. Took very long time to fill out important paperwork for work to accommodate condition. Definitely felt that she really was not all about the patient and listening to them. Would not recommend her to anyone.
This woman is horrible. Unprofessional, greedy, and genuinely strikes fear in me that she treats patients. when I questioned her opinion - the one where she told me NOT to talk to my family and friends (i.e. my support system, because thats a great idea for people with depression) and only discuss my life with her (to which she also very rudely pointed out "do you have a medical degree?") I was accused of being defensive. This woman wields her prescription pen like a billy club, smashing down anyone with any kind of intelligence and making her patients (the ones she should be caring for) co-dependent and reliant on her simply to make money. It is disgusting and sad. Avoid at all costs.
