Dr. Barbara G Reisman 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.

Dr. Barbara Reisman is the Best doctor I have ever encountered. She listens, is compassionate, does not judge, is always encouraging, positive, professional, willing to discuss options. She saved my life more than once because I have dangerous coping skills.. She was more than patient w/me. She had faith in me even when I did not. I could spend all day listing all the reasons I Love her so much but who has that kind of time ? lol
Dr. Reisman won me over with her ability to genuinely listen so that when she did respond to my seemingly random ramblings about my problems it was with the most gentle but confident insight into the heart of what was bothering me. Her waiting room, front office and office all convinced me of her professionalism, and yet the moment we began to interact with each other it was clear that she doesn't feel the need to hide behind a white-coat professionalism at all. Instead her approach was direct yet full of genuine warmth and caring for me - like someone who loves what she is doing still, after 18 years in the field. I would recommend her services highly, without hesitation, to anyone who wants to feel better by the end of the first session with Dr. Reisman.
