Dr. Benita S Dieperink 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.

Rather than ask me questions, she assumed quite a lot, it turns out, over the last year. Because I didn't mention x, she thought that y. Because I didn't mention y, she thought z. Here's an idea: ASK YOUR PATIENT QUESTIONS. I have been too busy getting actual diagnoses for actual physical ailments to remember to tell you in the 5, 10 minute time that we have what's going on. She was frequently late -- by 10 minutes to as much as an hour -- but the one, two times I was late, I was given a passive-aggressive stare of the clock. Um, you're a psychiatrist. You can't tell me how you feel? Because of her, I now have a somatoform disorder on my list of diagnoses. But again, had she have asked, I could have told her all the diagnoses I have received for my REAL physical ailments in the last year. And I didn't even find out that she had diagnosed me with somatoform until I asked what my diagnoses were. (What kind of doctor doesn't tell you her diagnoses?) So after I closed my jaw, which was hanging open from that bit of news, I ticked off all the diagnoses I've had. Her response? Well...you have migraines, and no one knows what they are caused by. Really??? Well, no one who has migraines, including my spouse, knows the underlying reason. I mean I have TRIGGERS, as all migraineurs do, but no CAUSES. And as for the lack of reasons for neuropathy? If she knew anything about my connective tissue disorder, she'd know that it can lead to nerve inflammation. But she doesn't. She's just a psychiatrist, and an ignorant one, who seems quite happy to remain that way.
