Dr. Amanda E Williams 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.

I went to see this doctor after being disappointed by other doctors that hardly took any time with me and seemed too quick to prescribe medications. She took her time with me and gave me options other than just medications. She was easy to talk to. When I had some side effects, she called me back right away the same day and let me know what to expect and exactly what to do if the side effects did not improve. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a doctor that takes time and isn't a pill pusher.
This doctor was recommended to me by another doctor. Let me say she is very expensive (she doesn't take insurance of any kind). She appeared friendly but during my visits, it appeared that she didn't know what questions to ask or how to keep the conversation going. I was the one who had to speak and eventually ended up carrying the conversation and diagnosing myself. She pretty much sat there nodding her head and looking at the clock the whole time (like she had somewhere to go after my appointment). She would also look at her pad several times during our conversation (if I can call it that) and say "what else" like she was racking her brain to figure out what to ask. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking. She was also quick to prescribe me medication instead of trying to figure out what was really wrong with me. I told her about what I thought was the cause of my symptoms and she didn't even know what it was. After I started taking the medication she prescribed me, I started getting some severe side effects. I told her about some of the side effects that I was having and she brushed them off and said the medication should be taking care of those symptoms. Again, not listening to me. I have spent almost five hundred dollars of my own money for this "help". Now I am on medication that is addictive and that I will probably have a hard time getting off of. It has affected my breathing, speech, focus, gave me splitting headaches , a fast heart rate, anxiety and sleep disturbances. No help from her though. Now I have to go back to her again and figure out how to get off this medication and what if any side effects I may have during and after I get off this medication. My visit will be just another pay day for her. After I get off these meds, I am never going back to see this doctor. I want my body and brain back the way they were prior to taking the medication. If I could get my hard earned money back too I would. i regret spending my time and money with this doctor.
