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.

Best doctor u will ever meet!! So sweet and caring
For several years, Dr. Pertchik has taken excellent care of several members of my family. He is not a reductionist and spends much time during visits to consider what is going on in all aspects of your life (physically, cognitively, emotionally and socially) that may be impacting your diagnosis and treatment plan. He has unfailingly diagnosed our conditions when other physicians did not. He is kind, compassionate, respectful and humble when considering our questions, opinions and at times opposition to his recommendations. He welcomes active patient participation. Whenever we have doubted his opinion, or been in denial, he has always turned out to be right. I strongly recommend this caring, exceptional diagnostician.
