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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Berns since 2011. After previously seen 5 other psychiatrist, he was the only one to find the right combo of meds and get me stable. Dr. Berns is very patient and on a typical visit he spends at least 30 minutes with me. He truly cares about his patients and is no doubt heads and shoulders above other psychiatrist. Can't thank him enough - he literally saved my life.
Workers Comp, is constantly switching doctors, and I am so pleased to finally get a professional caring doctor. Dr. Berns is very sensitive to your needs and feelings. He is the only psychiatrist out of the other two that really makes an effort to understand how you feel. He will take all the time you need, and yet he is rarely late. He will involve you in the treatment, and sincerely include your opinion. His office staff is great, and run an efficient office. If you want an ethical intelligent up to date doctor, he's the one for you!
I was lucky enough to be sent to Dr. Alan S. Berns by my workers comp adjuster after my previuos psychiatrist Dr. Kolin had passed. I have been seeing Dr. Berns for several years and am very happy with him and his staff. He is a very caring doctor and listens to what you say and does whatever needs to be done to make your life bettter. He is a very knowledgable doctor and takes his time with you and you never have to wait long to see him. I am very lucky they sent me to him and I refer my friends and family to him because he is a great psychiatrist.
Dr. Berns is an exemplary psychiatrist. Cares about your well being. Works well with others on your treatment team. Encourages second opinion. Very responsive to patient.
