Dr. Alice Asby 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.

If you get this woman referred to you, avoid her like the plague. She is hostile and authoritarian. I have expressed my wish, many times, to have a friendly partnership, in my treatment. Her response was to slam her fist down on her desk and tell me "that we will never be friends!". I didn't ask her for a friendship but that the relationship be cordial. She exhibited her unwillingness to listen and ask pertinent questions because I had expressed my concerns that we were not getting along (unlike the relationships with my other treaters). She is a tally taker. She has a list of questions to check off but she is not interested in the person. She doesn't allow for questions or other viewpoints and shuts down all conversation. Worst of all, she uses threats like, "if you miss an appointment with me I'll be forced to do something." But, she leaves you hanging with what the consequences will be. So, as a client, you are left to speculate. She doesn't give out her business phone number, doesn't make her own appointments and doesn't return phone and emails even when its iniatated by another therapist, in regards to your treatment. We tried for 4 weeks without a response. And, she never smiles. She just opens her door, looks at me and nods. It is meant to intimidate and gives an air of coldness and power. It is a very unpleasant feeling. One that I do not like experiencing everytime I see her. Oh. One last thing that bothers me because my previous psychiatrists acted opposite of her, in every way; Asby never gives a 90 day supply so that you can get your medicatios cheaper, by mail. (I have been on the same meds for 4 years.)
