Specialties

Dr. Shelly N Savant 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.

condescending, rude

As an epilepsy patient who had been overmedicated by a previous doctor with a medicine that produced horrific side effects, such as: extreme anxiety, dissociative behavior, extreme weight gain, and outrageous paranoia- Savant never listened to my concerns about the medicine or side effects I was suffering. I could barely leave my home. She was not considerate of any of the financial situations I was going thru as a result. Very cold and very accusatory. New doctor stepped in and resolved med problems. Finally got my life back after 12 yrs of taking the wrong meds living in a complete brain fog! Thank God I never gave up pursuing the truth.

CNA/ worried family

Canceled appointments multiple times. Her bedside patient interaction lacks empathy and made my mother feel the burden of her busy schedule. I refuse to have my family member follow up her. You are lucky to see her for a scheduled appointment because she is always out of the office.
