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.

How dare a doctor publish a book on the validity of CFS and what to do when doctors do not believe symptoms to be real when HE DOES NOT EITHER. He sounds so caring in his book but he is awful. He goes psychiatric though his own work proof it is BRAIN DISEASE. He blows you off to the what we heard far too long.. its psychiatric..How damaging..please spare more of this onto you ..spread word to not put yourself through this again with this man
I have never known anyone nor seen any doctor as nasty as this man and to think he wrote a book on bedside manners with CFS is just Criminal. It almost sounds unreal that anybody could be this nasty but he is. After 30 plus years of severe CFS he put me on a drug that gave me quality of life finally after searching the globe. I am published on CFS I ran a support group of five hundred people internationally online and well-versed in the subject and finally was happy with quality. In life certainly not a drug abuser when he took it away and now I am a tortured ball in Agony in bed where I started at 21 years of age. He gave no explanation nor alternatives as far as medication or other doctors and abruptly walked out the room yes he is that nasty ... and to give life after decades for then eight years only to take it away is beyond words. how dare he have no conscience and leave me like this please . Obviously he does not care
My husband and I have been in Dr. Natelson's care for about 20 years. We've found Dr. Natelson to be extraordinarily knowledgeable, highly intelligent and exceptionally caring. He has always taken our health issues very seriously. His concern for his patients is genuine, and he is excellent at follow up. He is clearly an expert in his field. His diagnosis is always "spot-on" and his treatment plans effective. Although it is not always easy to get an appointment, and the waiting time in his office can sometimes be lengthy, he is worth it. He is an excellent doctor and it is a privilege to be his patient.
