I am best known for
Specialized as Psychiatrist
Dr. Naeem Aftab is probably the best Psychiatrist in Lahore. After several psychiatrists badly failed to give me proper psychiatric help in a professional way, I was lucky to find Dr. Naeem Aftab right after he came to Pakistan after more than 20 years of experience as a successful psychiatrist in United States. Dr. Naeem Aftab took personal interest in my case and handled everything in an extremely professional way while treatment by other doctors deteriorated my condition and made my everyday life very difficult and extremely miserable. Dr. Naeem Aftab's careful and professional psychiatric advice helped me do very original and creative research in applied mathematics that was appreciated across the world even in countries where people do not know many Pakistanis. I give all credit of my success to Dr. Naeem Aftab and his very kind, truly human, and extremely professional approach to psychiatry. I believe psychiatrists like him are an asset to our country.

I work for a Multinational in a role that is fairly challenging. I knew for a while that I had a problem concentrating specially on tasks that I found boring. Lack of concentration affected me in more than one ways at work, at home and social interaction. I knew that there was something wrong and it kept me from delivering at my full potential. With Dr. Naeem's diagnosis I was able to realise I had ADHD. I am now in the process of finding the right medication for me given the limited options available to us in Pakistan. The social stigma of visiting a psychiatrist in Pakistani society needs to over come. After a few sessions with Dr. Naeem I feel mental health is a very imp part of ones wellbeing and needs to be taken care off. If you have a problem seek help!
I went to Dr Naeem Aftab after struggling to find a good psychiatrist in Pakistan for about 3-4 years. Every doctor simply wanted to put me on unnecessary medication, and offered little to none counseling during their session with me. I was wrongly diagnosed with bipolar disorder and put on very strong drugs, lithium, lamotrigone etc to name a few. I always knew it's not bipolar, but as patients we trust the doctor to know what's best. Sadly, the doctors don't really realize the consequences of misdiagnosis or not investing themselves fully. I kept taking those medicines and kept gaining weight n had other side effects but did not see myself improving. I, therefore, gave up any hope and stopped my medication on my own. I still had the same issues but feared going to any doctor because I feared being put on meds again n being misdiagnosed. However, I eventually came across Dr. Naeem and I am so glad I did. He correctly diagnosed my issue. Counseled me and also told me why I was struggling with panic attacks. He told me bout cognitive errors and panic disorder. Told me there's no symptoms of bipolar what so ever and tried to stay away from medication the best he could. I think he's a great doctor and his 25 years of experience shows from the way he deals with his patients. I would definitely recommend people to go to him! Loved the experience!

My brother has a confuse personality.he always blame others for everything bad in his life.he do not say anything directly but by using the names of others.like if he wants car to be repaired, he does not do it himself but says to my mother to give the car to his younger brother as he has to go to university.but when younger brother repairs the car for his use.he just takes that away from him.he always uses other people name for his personal benefits.he lies alot even on smaller things.he do not do any work but compares his life all the time with his schoolfellows and says that i am the only one left so behind.is this any psychiatric behaviour or just a common thing.

My sister had an accident in December 2015 after which she was in coma for a month. She was completely on bed even after gaining consciousness for which her physiotherapy was done daily. In july 2016 she visited india and stayed at a rehabilitation centre for 2 months. Now my concern is everything else is fine but her mental condition is not that of a normal person. Her behaviour has changed. She gets aggressive at times. I dont know how should i put it but she has become very child like. She is also taking anti depressant medicines suggested by a psychiatrist. Kindly suggest if we should go for some therapies for her or not. Preferably in Dubai or Karach. Thank you

Age 34, having paper eating habit since childhood,mother of 2, also patient of thelisimia minor so always enamic, want to get rid of this bad habit, two continuesly miscarriages after my two boys, want to conceive now but my hemoglobin is very low 8-9, kindly help.
Hi. My sister-in-law has had a troubled marriage of 10 years. Husband re-married and she has now left him and living with us. She also has 3 kids living with father. She doesn’t talk much. Doesn’t share her thoughts at all. Keeps herself mostly in her room and usually intake her food separately. Can be very aggressive; even with parents. This has been going on for months now. We have tried a psychiatrist and she had some meds for a while. She is now resisting on going to any doctor at all. How do we make her see someone? As she doesn’t talk to family, I think she might need to get in touch with a psychologist. Please recommend someone with good experience, preferably female.
Hi Doctors.. I am facing insomnia from last 20-25 days.. i faced sever allergy (Itching) and i took zentel 400 mg novidate and softin . i am not sure if i am facing it because of this allergy or there is another issue. There is no change in my routine or diet. Cant get sleep more than 4-5 hours. and this also after spending 1-2 hours of struggle at night.
I have a trouble area a few inches above the navel on the left side. It feels constricted and pulsates all the time and swells up in response to many foods, which leads to fatigue, brain fog and depression. I have been on allergy & depression meds in the past. However, sometimes(a total of 5-6 times in the last few years) what has happened is that because of maintaining low stress and healthy diet for a long time, the swelling goes away, and fatigue etc literally vanish. And the first stool after swelling going away is always hairpin shaped, like a U whose two lines are touching each other. I am sure it holds the clue to the real cause of my issues and if dealt with, my symptoms will go away for good. Please tell the possible causes of hairpin stool and what should I do to investigate further. Many Thanks.
Our patient has been experiencing severe headaches since the past 5 or 6 months. Before that she had a mild depression and used often used sedatives like Alprazolams. But since the past 5 or 6 months, she experiences severe headaches beyond control of the the ordinary pain killers. We even use Voren Inj but to no avail mostly. We have consulted many doctors, most of them advised anti depressants. The patient had been on a slightly high dose of different anti depressant drugs for about two months now but still the severe headache persists. finally now the patient had begin to experience epilepsy like seizures due to this headache. Please advice and let us know of a good experienced doctor in Karachi. we will be very thankful to you.
My mother always feels a continous fast heart beat and a feeling of electricity flowing through her body which has really disturbed her. Following are other symptoms 1. Palpitations 2. Dizziness 3. Feeling like to vomit 4. Low chest pain 5. Weight loss She is so much disturbed that she is always talking death and crying almost all the time. We took her to a lot of doctors but each everyone said this is stress and depression and gave her antidepressant. She need serious help. I dont think so it is depression or stress. She is suffering from something. Please i need good doctor urgently.
