Dr. Biswas' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Biswas "Debashis Biswas | Semmes Murphey Neurologic and Spine Institute Debashis Biswas was born in Calcutta (currently known as Kolkata), India in 1963. He got his medical degree from R G Kar medical College in 1985. For ten years he trained in trauma and orthopedics in various institutes in India and UK . He came to the US in 1996 which was in " the decade of the brain". There was a lot of new propaganda about developments in the world of neurosciences and the mysteries of the brain and spinal cord. This influenced him to consider a career in neurology. He entered and completed residency in neurology at MCP Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, PA . He was the chief resident of the program in the year 2000. On completion of his neurology residency he started working as a general neurologist as the wide spectrum of neurological disorders interested him tremendously. He practiced in Philadelphia for three years before moving to this area in 2003. He remains fascinated with general neurology and continues to practice as a general neurologist. He likes to have a more hands on approach in his patient care and also greatly enjoys interacting with his patients. He also enjoys teaching medical students and residents. He is passionate about traveling and cinema. He also enjoys reading and photography. His favorite authors are Oliver Sacks, V S Ramachandran and Wilbur Smith. He lives in Germantown, TN with his wife Monami , 3 sons – Aditya, Ishan, Adrish and a dog named Simba."

Olive Branch, MS |
I have never in 38 years been told by any Dr there is nothing I can do for you go see your PCP or go to the ER. He is the specialist he is the one that supposed to know what to do. He is so quick to say if you need anything just call, but it takes 4 calls to even get someone to understand how much pain you are in to get a nurse to call you. Then you have to tell the nurse your going to see me now not in a month. It's just ridiculous.

Dr. Biswas is an excellent listener. I have always found him to be very patient and empathetic. He is also not one to waste time, which I appreciate, but suppose others might find off putting.

After waiting 2 hours to see this arrogant ego maniac he would not listen to me because after asking me a few questions he made his diagnosis and wasn't the least bit interested in anything I had to add. He was condescending, rude, and socially ignorant. I was more than shocked by his behavior and lack of professionalism. I PRAY you seek help with another neurologist. He showed no genuine concern or empathy. I have never been treated with such disrespect. SHAME ON HIM!

He never let me explain the problems I'm experiencing without interrupting me. Then, he was close to out of the door without letting me finish my questions and get the answers I needed. He needs to communicate with his patients better and be much more courteous. After waiting 1 1/2 hours to see him, I got maybe 5 minutes with him. I won't be going back.
