About Dr. Samir F Farag MD
Dr. Samir F Farag 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.

Very supportive and skilled Psychiatrist
Self-verified patient of Dr. Samir F Farag - Posted on December 22nd, 2018
Great doctor of the mind and really listens Dr. Samir Farag is very knowledgeable and supportive. Been with him 7 years now. He's the best listener out of all I had in the past and processes quickly presenting what he feels would benefit me best. He's been supportive and encouraging. Reminds me how far I've come and how much I've worked and how hard to get there and that I can't give up. He believes that I'll get what I'm after and I did. He knows medicines every which way but loose. Polite, professional, dignified, gentleman. Respectful, caring, concerned. He gives space for me to talk unlike others and without criticism or judgement. Very sharp dresser, Not disheveled like many of the other psychiatrists I've had. Appearance says a lot with a psychiatrist and a disheveled mind doctor is Not a doctor who should be treating someone else's mind and behavior when they won't care for themselves. *Very accepting, supportive and understanding of my LGBQI&T communities. If you're in need of a very good psychiatrist with whom you needn't worry and can be yourself, go see him and stick with it. You deserve to feel better. We all do. Best to all, ~MC

He was uncaring and rude. He gave me medicine that caused me to gain 80 pounds over 2 months.. My mother came with me once to ask him to change the medication due to the weight gain. He wouldn't. He said, "Do you want your daughter dead or fat?" I was thin when I started going to him.... He said I must have been eating all day long. My eating habits were the same as when I was thin. He didn't seem to care one bit about me, the weight gain, or the added depression that caused! There were other medications that he could have given me. I have since changed doctors and am happy with him.
