Dr. Abdul H El-Etr has the following 2 specialties
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.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
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.

Extremely knowledgeable, flexible, positive personality
Only 1 person at this office I can say is nice (front desk)...The Dr did nothing but pull you in a room and type on his laptop. So basically you can tell him anything and he will prescribe you meds with out even knowing if you actually need it. He billed for services not done, then they have the audacity to call me being rude about a bill that was incorrectly submitted. Per my insurance all f/u visits are paid just pay your $40 co pay. Now the biller at their office called me very rude and obnoxious , and when I tried to talk she hung up on me. So If you want find another doctor that will actually do his job instead of billing...I wouldn't tell anyone to go to this office off E 3rd street..Bad for the Community to mislead with false diagnosis and get rich off people ...
I have been with dr. Eletr about 6 yrs now and I recommend him to anyone I know with nuerological issues. He's one of the nicest and caring doctors that I've ever had the privilege to meet. he's extremely caring and works with you on your issues and makes you feel involved in how it is handled. I highly recommend him.
