Specialties

Dr. Shanan Munoz has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Undecided...

After my neurologist at UTSouthwestern relocated, Dr. Munoz became my new neurologist. Maybe she was having a bad day when I initially met her, but I walked away feeling definitely UNDERwhelmed. She did not seem to have much knowledge of PRO-ACTIVE SUPPLEMENTS for brain health, such as Omega 3's, which is a well known ANTI-INFLAMMATORY. Other visits with her have been routine. I decided to become my own health advocate in learning all I can about optimum brain health.

She's very knowledgeable, personable, and caring.

Dr. Munoz is a very likable lady and doctor. She takes the time to evaluate your physical status and asks probing questions about your physical and emotional health. She specializes in MS and she has taken a special interest in learning all she can about it. She's not the normal Neurologist. You'll like her very much!

Only interested in migraines

Dr. Munoz is only interested in treating migraines, which have never been my issue. Every visit she asked about my headaches, which I never have. She wanted to probe and probe about them when I am concerned about other more troublesome neurological symptoms. Her approach is to prescribe strong meds and not look for root cause. Frustrated with her and her office staff, which I'm sure is why her assistants are not consistent. She needs to to got a university setting because managing her own practice is not her strong suit.
