Dr. Boyd A Dwyer 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. Dwyer is beyond rude and unprofessional! He is a pompous jerk and should not be a doctor! My appointment lasted less then a minute because he did not agree with two other doctor's diagnoses's and when I asked him to let me describe my symptoms, he snapped, "I'm the headache doctor!" I replied that I realized that but would be more comfortable if he would hear me out and he started raising his voice to me at which point I asked if he could lower his voice because I was experiencing a severe headache and he replied, "this is ridiculous! Get out!" And kicked me out. Aren't doctor's supposed to help people? This jerk is self-centered and narcissistic! I don't recommend going to him unless you don't care about yourself or your true illness.
I am currently looking for a new neurolgist and when he first came into the office he had an attitude with me. When he ask me to explain my history he not only in iterrupted me but made me feel like a piece of crap. I did not even say anything about my pain medication and he just automatically and stops me and brings it up that I am on it. Of course I would need my new doctor to be prescribed me my pain medication but Dr. Dwyer Just automatically stop me be in mid conversation and told me he would not prescribe me any narcotics what ever
