Dr. Syed H Anwar 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.

Dr Anwar knew exactly what was wrong with me the minute he looked in my eyes.I was hallucinating and with my first time visit he gave me medicine that snapped me back in reality. He also changes my dosage's when ever he feels it's better for me.He saved my life and I will never forget him.
I've never seen a better psychiatrist, and I've seen quite a few!

Dr. Anwar saved my life. He is a compassionate, and extremely gifted Psychiatrist. I had seen plenty of psychiatrists in my youth, and they all just gave me medicine that made me feel worse. Dr. Anwar is the reason I am accepting my mental illness. He will work with you for any reason, whether you have school or legal troubles, Dr. Anwar goes out of his way to tend to the needs of his patients. He is one of the main reasons I am now studying as an undergraduate medical student of psychiatry. In 2006, I had such a horrible depressive episode, I actually voluntarily committed myself, and Dr. Anwar had the cure. To this day, I cannot thank him enough!
The Opposite of Help
Self-verified patient of Dr. Syed H Anwar - Posted on September 24th, 2018
Don't let his calm demeanor fool you. Dr. Anwar is incredibly arrogant and will resort to threats if you do not like his plans for treatment. If you find yourself under his care and have a pre-existing condition, don't be surprised if he tries to re-diagnose you with something completely different and recommend you keep taking improper medication for his mis-diagnosis despite the issues that would come up if you are taking medication for a disease you don't have. I have had to deal with Dr. Anwar a few times during periods I did not have access to appropriate medication or healthcare because of lapses in insurance coverage all leading to psychological crises. Last time I was under his care in an inpatient facility, given my history with him at that point, I refused to take any medication he prescribed...because he was still trying to prescribe me things that literally do the opposite of any medication that has helped me over the years. When I was discharged from his "care" the last time, he made a point to speak with me on my way out. He said "I don't care what you say or think, the next time you're here, you will take what I give you even if it means 'the shot' (meaning a mix of Haldol and Ativan forcefully given to patients in these types of facilities)." I responded with "Sounds good" smiled in his stupid face, left and found licensed professionals that actually helped me get appropriate treatment for the actual disorder I have.
