Dr. Salia Kathpalia 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.
    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.

Dismissed my urgent need for help

I made an appointment with Dr. Kathpalia when my depression was so severe I wasn't sure I wanted to live anymore. My meds weren't working, and for months I hadn't been able to find a psychiatrist who accepted my insurance and didn't have long waiting lists. I was so relieved to find a doctor and felt hopeful for the first time in months. Prior to my appointment, i told a therapist in his office that because I was considered med-resistant, I had experimental treatments every few months for the past year on an emergency basis that had improved my depression, but only temporarily. I now needed a doctor who could help find meds that would work consistently so I wouldn't need emergency treatments. Without even seeing me, he cancelled my appointment and refused to talk with me because he didn't agree with the treatments I had received. I called his office several times to explain how badly I needed his help, and if he would just talk to me, I could explain that if he could help me, I wouldn't need the treatments anymore. He never returned my calls. His disregard for my urgent need for his help is the most careless, irresponsible behavior I've ever experienced from a doctor, especially one who wouldn't even meet with me.
