Dr. Brian A Farah 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.

I've been going to Dr. Farah now for over 10 years. He has been consistent with how he treats me, which is always with respect, compassion and kindness! Considering my diagnosis, this made a huge difference in how I viewed myself. His encouragement was also pivotal in me applying and getting accepted into the Surgical Technician program at my college! It has been an extremely long road getting to the point of feeling as good as I do today, but when I look at what I've accomplished and how it's changed me as a person for the better, it was SO worth it! Yes, Dr. Farah can do NO wrong in my eyes! He's great!!!
I saw Dr. Farah after many psychiatrists. He has been the kindest, most understanding and caring Doctor I have been to in the past ten years. He doesn't run a "doctor's mill" just shuffling patients in and out. He truly cares about his patients' well being. My response to the comment about him being a "quack," is maybe your girlfriend had a dependency issue. Obviously detoxing is going to get worse before better. I can't imagine him being mean or spiteful on purpose but I can imagine how exhausting it would be dealing with people addicted to pain meds and unwilling to try to detox. Many times it seems Luke a drug addiction is really a way to self medicate for another problem. I am incredibly thankful I found Dr. Farah. He has helped me improve my life with medication, reflection and acceptance. I fear where I would be if I had not wondered into his office when I needed help the most. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM IF YOU TRULY WANT TO GET BETTER!!!
