Dr. Adam S Butera has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

He's been very understanding with me and what I've been experiencing that has been adding more anxiety on top of my existing generalized anxiety disorder I've had since I was ten and I'm currently 35. He really seems to care about how I'm doing and even tries to reassure me that thing's are going to work out. I simply could not ask for a better Dr! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who wants or needs help whether it be for something as simple as insomnia to the worst thing you can think of! He makes me feel very comfortable and he's very compassionate. I love this Dr.
The doctor is great, but the staff is the worst I've ever seen or dealt with. They NEVER answer their phone, never call you back, and never stay open their advertised time. The staff(not the doctor), do not care for their patients. If you need to see this doc, make sure it is not anything major, or else you will regret it.
A doctor with a tremendously high IQ and actually listens to your feedback and makes adjustments if necessary after listening to you. The important thing is to keep going back on your follow ups and give Dr Butera really good feedback on things like how you are feeling, if you think a particular medicine seems to be making you feel (good and bad included), what should be expected with a medicine, etc. The man knows his stuff. I'd recommend keeping a detailed log between visits if you are on meds. He will listen to you and what's going on and is not afraid to try new things or adjust dosages based on your feedback, but you need to provide good, detailed feedback. General Practioners attempt to treat things like depression or anxiety by just handing out whatever the popular pill is at the time. This way, patients often get ineffective treatment or unnecessary side effects and wind up giving up instead of going to a guy who specializes in what's going on in your brain and is very good at it. I've recommended Dr. Butera to probably 10 people since I began seeing him 8 or so years ago. You'll have to probably spend some time in the waiting room, but it is because he is actually spending time listening to his patients and when you make it into his office, that patient will be YOU.
