Dr. Alfred Herzog 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.

Dr. Herzog treated me at Manchester Hospital in Manchester Ct. I was warned prior to his "chat" that he is biased against women. The warning was accurate. I found him to be insulting to the point of him stating he could not understand why my husband would stay with me. I later was diagnosed as bipolar by a psychiatrist who knew a bipolar when he met one. It comes as no surprise to me Dr Herzog will not accept insurance. If you want to be misdiagnosed, insulted, and suffer damage to your wallet, this is your guy.
Dr. Herzog was happy to continue with my misdiagnosis as a rapid cycling manic depressive when I came to see him and keep me medicated to the hilt. I feel that with his education and degree he should have been able to see with obvious clarity that I have adult ADD which often mimics the symptoms of bipolar. I was recommended to Dr. Herzog because he was a Bipolar Specialist. He prescribed me 5 different medications which I was taking at one time and pregnant. I am now receiving proper treatment and with one stimulant pill all of my symptoms disappear. I continually felt that Dr. Herzog was more concerned with the money, as his fee is $185 a visit and he does not take insurance. He would spend 45 minutes with me a session and I still do not understand why or how he did not suspect adult ADD. Also, Dr. Herzog, being frustrated with my missing and changing appointments (obvious ADD flag) and lack of ability to afford his fee, kindly had me committed and then fired me when he was contacted regarding a crisis situation I was experiencing. Hope this helps someone.
