Specialties

Dr. Shah Nawaz 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.

A very astute, compassionate doctor. The best psychiatrist I've seen so far and I've seen a motley group. I feel very comfortable and very much at ease with him.

Great psychiatrist

I have seen psychiatrists on a regular basis for the last 20 years. Dr. Nawaz is by far the kindest, most respectful, doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He always took the time to answer all of my questions and I never felt rushed. He has a very gentle and polite demeanor. He always treated me with respect and dignity. Unfortunately, I am no longer living in the area and I certain I will never come across such a great doctor, as Dr. Nawaz. He is one of kind.

Shill for Big Pharma!!!

I kept telling him, I don't want to be prescribed new medications, but he insisted I give them a try. Im now stuck on Invega cause of this jerk. Do yourself a favor doc, go back to med school and actual look at clinical trials and research the side-effects of the drugs, you prescribe. You clearly heard about the huge lawsuits across the US, involving Invega and gynecomastia.
