Specialties

Dr. Shan M Nagendra has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

  • 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.

Unfriendly, self absorbed, ignorant, cocky, and know it all staff

I have never ever visited a doctors office that had so many patients waiting in and outside to see the doctor. My first impression was wonderful he must be very good and compassionate. 1. A nurse saw me first and went against all that my previous doctors told me which I was upset and very glad that I came to see them but she had a chip on her shoulder and I thought she was having a bad day so I didnt say a word. 2. I waited for 3 hours to see doctor and he spent 5 to ten minutes. 3. Everything he said he was going to do. He did not and acted like I didnt know what I was talking about when I saw him again. I understand he sees a lot of patients but please dont talk down other doctors when you tell a patient one thing then act like I have two heads the second time. 4. Please have a meeting regarding your office staff not all is unfriendly your head nurse has to get off her high horse and speak with compassion when people are not well and not treat them like a piece of dirt when she does not know one thing about them. Just because a person is able to not show her chronic pain does not mean they live everyday feeling fine and go to a doctor for help to treat such condition does not make it right for her to be indignate and say well thats your problem tell her you do not have enough medicine to help you till your next doctors visit. How is that pain management? I told her I dont understand what do I do? I cant drive here every friday. She said, thats your problem. I think she is definately in the wrong profession and uses her title to be a big snot nose, cocky, unprofessional, nurse( I think ). I have never ever came across such a nasty professional as her. I have seen professionals take a bunch of crap but if you cant handle it, move on. Dr. Nagendra she is an awful representative of your office just to inform you and next time please be curteous of patients who are there to see you with chronic pain to write down all your notes so you dont look at the patient the next appointment and not know what they are talking about. Thank you. I never write comments only if I have had good experiences but for two weeks it has bothered me how your office treated me. The other girls where ok and nice but your head nurse was awful and uncompassionate.
