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.

Dr Kidder has been a life saver for me. He was able to quickly diagnose my problem which turned out to be a rather rare condition. Actually he did it on the 1st visit. The treatments over the last 2 years have greatly improved my quality of life. Initially taken in the hospital, Dr. Kidder, was there to supervise the administration and was always reassuring and easy to talk to. When I asked questions he was more than happy to not only answer them, but to engage in deeper discussions about my condition. I would highly recommend him.
He is a rude arrogant obnoxious thinks he knows it all. He has being a jerk down pat. He does not know what he is doing. He completely misdiagnosed my husband. Othe doctors have apologized for his behavior as he is a disgrace and embarrassment to the profession. Whatever you do don't see him. He's awful.
Dr. Kidder is a smart man with an extremely rude staff. It is very hard to get an appointment when you need one and the wait time is very long. Also, they do not usually confirm your appointments and they have often cancelled mine without notifying me first. I am in the process of changing doctors because of these problems.
