Dr. Shiva S Natarajan 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.

Please do not go to this man. He refused to come to the ER to see my daughter. His lack of knowledge resulted in my daughter not receiving treatment for a life altering disease in a timely matter. We thankfully went to a different neurologist who recognized her problem right away. He was also very dishonest when confronted with his mistakes.

This doctor is a JOKE to the medical field. He cares only about money and how many patients he can see a day, spending less than 5 minutes with each. His employees are more experienced for a Fast Food job than a physicians office, You get no help from them either because every time you come in, there is new employees. Probably the highest turn over of workers in Memphis. I would not recommend this office to anyone.

Highly Recommend

I have been seeing Dr. Natarajan since 2007 for migraines and would highly recommend him to anyone. Years ago I had seen another neurologist and quit going to him after frustrating results. I also went to an ear, nose and throat doctor and went through allergy shots for several years after being convinced that my headaches were allergy related. In 2007, I took my teenage daughter to Dr. Natarajan for migraines and was so impressed with the results that she got from his treatment plan and explanation of her headaches, that I decided to book myself an appointment. I am so glad that I did, because my headaches are now under control. I am on a preventative medication and also have a medication I take if I do feel a headache coming on. Instead of living with headaches all of the time, I now have only 2 or 3 times a month when I have to take something to stop one! (Compared to ones that lasted a week or so at a time!) Dr. Natarajan is also very good at answering questions and explaining things to his patients.

Monstrous experience

From beginning to end, the visit was a nightmare. I had botox injections for migraines. The 'doctor' came in, did not say one word and started stabbing me with 31 needles to the face, neck and shoulders in extremely rapid succession. After he finished, he just left. I didn't see him any more. I felt like I had just been attacked. The pain was extreme. His assistant (thank goodness) had a beating heart in his body because I was just sitting there crying. He got me a tissue and told me what to expect and gave me the paperwork. NEVER EVER go to this doctor.
