Dr. Sunil K Thummala has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Best headache doctor. Wait time was a bit longer but well worth it. Truly a compassionate doctor. I saw one other neurologist in the area who showed no respect to patients. I can easily say Dr.T is the best. Now he is my favorite doctor. Headaches are far better after a long time. I took few visits to figure out correct treatment.
I generally don't waste my time writing reviews. I felt I have some obligation here to review this doctor to help others in my situation. There are many neurologists in my area but Dr.Thummala is special. He spent time to educate me and my family regarding my MS not just giving a medication to take. He made a stressful situation easy to handle. First time I felt a doctor truly cares about a patient. I heard similar feedback from my friend who sees him for headache. I now respect doctors.
Waited little longer than expected but worth it. I was seeing another neurologist for 10 yrs. I used to go there get pills and that neurologist never seemed to be interested in me as a patient. On first visit to Dr.Thummala I learned more about my seizures than what I know in last 10 yrs. Very knowledgeable young doctor. Would recommend without any hesitation.
Very busy neurologist. He is smart and very logical in explaining my abnormal brain scan. He did a thorough exam and said he does treat test but patient as my exam was entirely normal. He gave me a list of things to watch and let him know. Rare to see such doctors now a days. He seems to have many offices. I saw him at Frisco office.
