Dr. Samir A Kabbani has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

What a waste of time. I was referred to Dr. Kabbani for several different issues. My first appointment he was in the room with me less than two mintues. My follow up he was in the room about five minutes. He ordered test and when the test showed nothing he wasn't interested in helping me determine the cause of my problems. At my follow up I was trying to explain my symptoms and before I could finish the sentence he was interjecting with "Oh, I have that too", "It's probably the weather". What a crock. Please don't waste your time with this "Dr.". If you are referred to him please, please insist on seeing another Neurologist. The office staff was friendly enough. His nurse was very friendly and helpful.
3 years ago I began a journey of MG,began with vagle nerve problem and quickly turned into a very serious condition. I had been to hospitals and numerous physicians. At that time there was little known about Mg,even at hospitals and I still find the usual that it is not that serious. Dr Kabbani acted quickly and advocated for my care beyond any expectations. I was asked if it was okay to see Nurse Practitioner ,I had the option. I did and was taken care of with the same effort as Dr Kabbani. She found me a heart specialist (wasn't easy)and worked as a team with all my medical doctors. I am well pleased and would offer this information to anyone seeking a Neurologist.
Most of your time is spent waiting. The office is dingy at best. The staff is less than polite, and unorgainzed. I saw the Dr. on my first visit, most of the appointment was spent with the RN,taking notes on the case of the Dr. Next visit was for testing and never saw the Dr., on this visit it was the nurse practione, who was uninformed. Third visit was even worst, saw the Dr. only to have my wife insulted for asking questions. Were it not for the fact my case is Workers Comp and there are not many Neurologist who accept WC patients, I would be somewhere else.
Dr Kabbani is extremely thorough in his medical care. Only giving you his very best.He is always educating himself to learn more to help his patients get the best care.He had never "acted" like he was "the best", in an arrogant manner. Which had been my experience with Neuros before him and since leaving his practice.:(He also devotes his time to the community in helping us learn about different neurological illnesses.He also cares about your mental health as well and will help you see things in a better light. Making your personal issues not so overwhelming. He cares enough to treat the patient as a whole. And if his words hurt a little, in time you realize he is right. Inner Growth hurts sometimes.Is also very supportive of alternative treatments if you wish to try them. Like VNS(Vagal Nerve Stimulation), if you qualify. I had been told no 3 seperate times. Knowing fully well I did qualify. I had all but given up on VNS. Then decided about my 3rd or 4th visit that I would ask one last time. I expected to hear no and received a resounding yes. That surgery changed my life dramatically. 2 months after he referred to me as his miracle patient;)I was with him for around 8 years, till I made the choice to be closer to my son who is in the military. Because of my health, it was admittedly a difficult decision. It has been bittersweet for me as my health has declined. I feel I am with a neuro who seems to want to erase all Dr. Kabbanis and my hard work. Start over to my detriment.So if you have the chance to see Dr. Kabbani...give him a try and some time to work with you. In neurology....nothing happens overnight. It does take time sometimes to find the "right" thing for you. But you can feel safe that he is going to give you the very best of him.Most importantly...he makes you part of a team with him, letting you have a choice when applicable. He will at least hear you out and explain his reasoning.It is to bad that in this day and time, there are not a whole lot like him.
