Dr. Armand S Schachter 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 was hospitalized at Brookwood for severe depression and was assigned this guy. He would have staff wake his patients up extremely early and spend about 1-2 minutes, at most. It's outrageous that patients are allowed to be woken up so early (often before 6AM) and that a psychiatrist can spend so little time evaluating them.
I went in for postpartum depression and anxiety. My daughter is 7 weeks old and we have a very wonderful nursing relationship, and formula is expensive, so I wanted my meds to be reviewed (already on some). Also needed see if any adjustments needed to be made that was still safe for breastfeeding. He was very impatient, didn't even ask why I was there except "postpartum depression". He prescribed me medication that was NOT safe for nursing, and told me it was my call and to ask my pediatrician/OB if I needed more information on safety. He even prescribed me Ambien!!! With a newborn baby!!!! Not going to him again, need another doctor. :(
This is the worse of the worse Dr. ever.... He is a disgrace to other Dr. who really care about there pt. he is rude , very bad bedside manners , LIER !! will tell you he is gonna change your meds ..HE DIDN'T ....tells you he is discharging you will tell the nurses.... NEVER EVEN SPOKE TO THE NURSES..... when I ask the nurses about it my nurse said honey he just told you that to shut me up!!! ( this is a stay in hospital at Brookwood ) so 2 days later I confronted him about flat out lying to me , I know he was not expecting that.. lucky me I was discharged with in 2 hrs, I would not send my dog to that man. AND BELIEVE ME when I say don't send me a bill cause I'm not paying you ...trust me you want get a penny from this chic....I feel so sorry for all those pt. I met in the hospital that this dr. is treating and not by there chose he was the one on call.....
He has a big heart, although seems intimidating maybe because he's well over 6 ft, promotes mutual trust, knows the latest about all medication that can effect mental conditions, dedicated, experienced. Best to have a list of things to talk about when you see him or any other doctor. I trust him with my life and anyone elses life.
My father was a patient of his in Brookwood Hospital. He was never available for discussion. Did not share plan of care with family. NOT good for patient and family with Alzheimers.
