Dr. Thanesseri Baskaran has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Lazy and cold, writes RX and rushes you out of office

The doctor asks you a question or two, that you would ask to a stranger you meet on the street, for example "How are you doing?" "Anything new" as he writes out the prescriptions he prescribes you from the first visit, based on a paper test of 15 questions along with asking if you have been diagnosed with any illness in the past, and any medicines you are on, or have been on in the past. The staff at the Circles of Care - Outpatient Clinic in Rockledge, FL are incompetent in general, unprofessional, and rude at other times. Getting in touch with the doctor with any questions in nearly impossible, even when a pharmacist or doctor attempts to contact him, or get information needed for treatment of physical conditions or concerns about errors made on the prescriptions, or him forgetting to write one of the prescriptions. Calls are never returned by the staff or the Doctor, errors in his record keeping caused me issues during a hospital visit, due to the chart on me having inaccurate information, and incomplete information. I believe a lot of the issues are due to the staff, and organization that the doctor works for, however the doctor himself does not attempt to correct any of these issues as far as I can tell after it being brought to his attention by me, and others I've talked to in the waiting room who have similar issues.
