NEURO PSYCHIATRY

The Department of Neuropsychiatry at Indo American Hospital offers outpatient clinics, inpatient admissions and consultation services for inpatients admitted to the hospital.

The department undertakes assessments of patients with psychiatric symptoms in the context of neurological disorders (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Epilepsy. Neurologically confirmed functional neurological symptoms and psychiatric symptoms where an organic cause is suspected are also assessed here.

After a thorough analysis our Neuro Psychiatry specialists offer outpatient treatment wherever appropriate and this may include cognitive behaviour therapy or drug therapy. A multidisciplinary inpatient rehabilitation programme is available in more complex cases.
