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.

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.

He was the first to diagnose my condition, after I saw many other physicians for my ailments. I would wish his diagnosis was not accurate. He assured me his diagnosis is correct and he will do his utmost to treat my condition with the latest research that is promising and hopeful. I appreciate his kind and personable attention.
My local neurologist referred me to Dr. Shaibani. I did not want to go, but I am glad I did. After 4 years with my local neurologist I finally received a diagnosis. It wasn't the best diagnosis, but I expected it and I am glad to finally get treated. Dr. Shaibani spent a lot of time with me and listened to me. His staff was very curious. Highly recommend him.
The is the only time in my life I have felt compelled to complain about a doctor. I have a motor neuron disease and wasted eight months going to Dr. Shaibani. He was unwilling to answer any of my questions or have open, honest conversation about my probable diagnosis and what I might expect as the disease progressed. He offered no treatment options or council about how to live with this kind of disease. The last time I saw him, he told me to come back in six months. I was not willing to continue doing nothing. He actually blocked progress in getting a diagnosis. If I had not persisted in pursuing information on my own, I would not have found real help. I found a clinic at Houston Methodist that specializes in some motor neuron diseases. After a three day assessment, I was diagnosed, given materials to read about my disease, given medication and home health equipment to address disease symptoms, tested and evaluated by a team of doctors and connected to a support group. I now have an entire organization of doctors and specialists from different disciplines who are devoted to my care . Interestingly enough, Dr.Shaibani’s office is within walking distance of this clinic and he never referred me to them.
