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. Klafter is an excellent physician. I have a very good job but became so depressed, I felt that I was going to be forced to resign due to my inability to carry on. I called Dr. Klafter in desperation and he saw me within three days. Dr. Klafter was always bright and positive with me. He utilized medication very effectively. He gave me very good advice that assisted me in coming through my very serious depression. He was available to me in emergencies. One evening, I called him late in the evening and he responded to my call immediately. By the end of 8 sessions, I was again functional and stronger than ever. He assisted me in developing skills that I still use and these skills are helping me to remains free of depression. Thank you Dr. Klafter.
Took me a long time to get an appointment but when I finally did he helped me so much. I was super depressed and suicidal. I was obese from being on way too many meds, and so tired all day from sleep apnea. He took me off most of them. He actually does his own therapy, so more 15 minute med checks. Nicest guy, and he's a Orthodox Jew, which I think is really cool.
I was diagnosed with a many different things by different psycologists and MD psychiatrists. He saved my life. They said I was bipolar, schizophrenic, multiple personalities, you name it. He saw me for therapy twice a week for over three years, then once a week. I was on 5 different medications before I saw him. Now I am only on one antidepressant. The only negative thing I can say is he is expensive because he won't take any insurance. Also he is very busy and he sometimes won't take new patients. I would recommend anyone who is getting different a different diagnosis from everyone who evaluted you or who is taking lots of medications that don't really help you to see someone like Dr. Klafter. He knows other doctors who are good. My boyfriend needed a therapist and we wanted Dr. Klafter to treat him too, but he wouldn't because he said it could be a conflict, but he sent him to another really good therapist who is trained like Dr. Klafter is.
