Specialties

Dr. Yashwant S Chaudhri has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

One Star

At the Colton office, Dr. Yahwant Chadaudhri advocated alternative ADHD medications from the medication I was successful with for years. I refused all of the psychiatric or antidepressant medications he advocated. My medication has worked well for years and I prefer not go under a medication trial and error regiment again. As a teacher, I must be sharp and able to constantly multi-task. There is no time to waiver, when small children are in your care! Dr. Chadaudhri also advocated his recommend pharmacy that delivers. Unfortunately, after a month of waiting for my medication I insisted on a hand written prescription at my second appointment. However, my pharmacy was unsuccessful for an additional 3 weeks in obtaining a standard authorization from his office. I was in fact without medication for 2 months. As an ADHD patient this may not have grave consequences. On the contrary, I fear for his patients that need medication to keep from suicide or homicide! Thankfully, his front office clerk was compassionate, caring and worked hard to accommodate his patients.

Rude doctor

He acted very rude to me and talked down to me. Pretty much called me messed up in the head when all I have is anxiety. I was prescribed something from my doctor that retired for my anxiety and chaudhri refused to help me and he made my anxiety worse. I highly don't recommend this psychiatrist. His assistant was very sweet though chaudhri was very rude and a nightmare
