Dr. Betty J Mintz has the following 2 specialties
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. Mintz was very brisk. Offered little information too me and was generally dismissive of my questions. Her office staff did not file the request for my MRI in time, resulting is a lot of run around. The MRI facility nearly cancelled my appointment because they had not received the insurance authorization from Dr MIntz's office. Dr did not call about MRI results.
Dr. Mintz saved my mother's life awhile back when she lined up everything my mom needed in the way of treatments and physicians at Mt. Sinai so that everything and everybody was there and ready to go when my mother arrived from another hospital up north. Everyone got to work immediately, and my mother received the life-saving treatment she needed in time to save her life. Dr. Mintz worked tirelessly to cut through all the red tape in order to get things done and organized in preparation for my mother's arrival at the hospital (which took HOURS of her time over the weekend). I have enough experience with the medical profession in NYC to know that this type of response from a physician is RARE and enlists only the highest standards of professional conduct---conduct which most doctors can only pay lip service to. Dr. Mintz is the real deal. Her own office in Manhattan is efficiently run, without the usual overbooking/overcrowding and disregard for the patient's own schedule. I do not remember ever having to wait for more than 10 minutes to see her. Though Dr. Mintz's credentials are better than any 10 doctors in NYC put together, she is never arrogant, but always down to earth, caring--and tough as only a brilliant physician knows how to be. If this sounds like I am a fan--guess what--I can't say sing this woman's praises enough. Let's see--what else. She also returns phone calls quickly (who does that in NY?). In short, Dr. Mintz is one of those rare individuals who has not been corrupted by the power and prestige of the medical world; she is a true healer and cares only about honoring her oath as a physician. I've seen the power games that doctors in this city love to play, and you can rest assured that if you choose Dr. Mintz, you will steer clear of all that dangerous, nauseating crap.
Dr. Mintz listens to everything you have to say, and is truly concerned. She'll spend as much time as is needed to solve your problem. You never feel she's rushing you out of the office, and she'll always return your phone calls. It's very hard to find a good doctor these days, and Dr. Mintz is definately one of the best.
