Dr. Shrinath S Kamat 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.

Out of 5 visits, the wait has never been less than, a 4 hr. wait. On the last visit aft 3 hrs.' several people that came in after us, were called back for service, which upset my husband very very much. this was the last time we had this experience in this office.

If I could give it a zero, I would!

I came to this office out of necessity. I have been coming here for some "yes" the strand of negative reviews are spot on. upon your initial visit, you are to do the standard paperwork which under no circumstances are you to turn in (or a copy of your medical history) before your appointment. Each time you arrive, you are to fill out a little form which asks for your "race" (on a non confidential form btw). Yes the 3 hour waits and sea of patients are norm as "the rude office staff" unfortunately bearing customer anger due to the doctor's lack of adequate staffing. THAT is a reflection on the doctors business sense. The office manager and Mary I found have been the most kind, professional and knowledgeable members in a rotating door of nobodies who saw the 'take a night class commercial while watching Springer' and you get (luz). But don't worry; I don't think she works there anymore! Luz's problem was just downright classlessness by 'fronting' as though she was gonna 'come for you' physically each time her incompetence was called out. While I found her antics "cheap entertainment" it once again reflects poorly on management. I wish the office manager was given the professional capacity to carry her duties more effectively. (And yes- the amount of time spent with the doc is about 10 min) but I can't complaint since I already spent 2:45hrs staring at the walls.

I have seen Dr. Kamat for almost a year, and everytime I go to the appointment I have to wait in a packed waiting room for almost 3 hours. Then spend not more than 10 minutes with the Dr. He doesn't tell me much about my condition unless I ASK. His staff is rude and don't care. If I miss my appointment, I am charged $25.00 and that can't be paid by mail or CHECK. I have to go INTO THE OFFICE BEFORE I can make another appointment and it has to be made in CASH. This is a rip off of senior citizens and I will never go back there again.
