Dr. Syed K Mustafa has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

This clinic has very rude and discourteously staff who are unfit to be working in mental health. the doctor does not understand English or even understand written English and supports a rude and discourteous staff person and bookkeeper to mistreat patients. He has faulty business and operational standards as well as lack of medical care ethics in treating patients appropriately.
If I could rate this place a "0", I would. This place is a nightmare to work with, and is a liability waiting to happen. Completely incompetent staff: 1) Reception cannot be reached, 2) nor do they return phone calls. You can't even get the office manager to call you back. 3) it's impossible to get refills on your prescription. Not only do they ignore your request to get them refilled, but also a pharmacy's request to get them refilled. 4) Get a copy of your file every once in awhile....that is, if you can get it at all. The only way I could even SEE a copy of my file was if it was being requested by another doctor. They refused to give me a copy. When I did see a copy, I noticed that they wrote down the wrong diagnosis in my file, to the point where it could've been detrimental to my future. 5) Your blood work lab results that you pay good money for are "lost" or are "never received" by the office staff. I've been to more than one lab, and it's the same story from the doctor, every time I was able to get an appointment, and asked him to confirm my bloodwork. The answer was "no, I don't see it....when did you get it done?....Well, if we don't have it, it was never sent to us".....They take no accountability for their own responsibilities. It's a good thing I already have a copy of my file so I can move on to someone a lot more competent. Again, I would go out of my way to discourage ANYONE from becoming a patient at PSPC.
I would give him 4 stars but his staff is extremely rude. I was pleased with Dr. Mustafa overall. He is very attentive, friendly and thorough. He explains things very well and is generally a likable person. This helps immensely when dealing with personal issues that warrant seeing a psychaitrist. His staff, however, is very rude. I missed an appt due to circumstances beyond my control so I called to notify his receptionist that I could not make it in. I was treated as if I had committed the most unforgivable offense. I assumed maybe she was having a bad day so I didn't think anything of it. When I called a few days later to reschedule my appt I was interrupted and corrected with "This actually isn't a reschedule this is considered a late-cancel" followed by silence on the phone line. Apparently my mis-use of terminology triggered an agry response. I understand that missed appointments are an inconvenience for a doctor and in no way am I saying that missing appointments is ok. In fact, charge me the no-show fee, I understand why it is there! That said, there is no excuse to be short and rude to patients even if they miss an appointment. Life happens. Just a warning to those considering Dr. Mustafa, do not be deterred by his front desk. He is a great Dr!
