Specialties

Dr. Shahzad S Allawala has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

Parent

This man needs to learn bedside manners very rude and disrespectful. Quick to judge and give his "expert" opinion on patients after visiting with them less than 10 minutes. Really in less than 10 minutes he can diagnose someone as being a threat to others or self. Quick to dismiss concerns from both patient and family. This must come from having private insurance and knowing parents can afford a college education for patient. In knowing this he knows he will get his money so why not keep a person longer than needed.. Medical board and Texas would be better off having his license revoked.

TERRIBLE "Doctor" if that's what you'd like to call him....

This man should have his medical license/s revoked. He cares only for the money that he will get, not any patients. When he reviews a patient(if he even comes in to work that day) its for about 30 seconds in a room of about 9 other patients and then he's gone never to be heard from until his next brief visit. Contacting him is a nightmare. Never once did he return a call or respond to an email in over a little more than a weeks time. How was this man ever even given a license to practice medicine?!?!?!

This doctor's office does not return calls, they do not answer their phone and do not care about the patient.
