thumbs up

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.

thumbs up

I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Naeem Aftab. His diagnosis and treatment everything is really good. He helped me a lot in pulling me out of a miserable situation.

thumbs up

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!

Depression

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.

case
Hairpin Shaped Stools

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.

Seizures, severe headaches

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.

Fast beat and electricity

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.
