Dr. Brian K Kelly 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.

I had read some negative reviews of other patients prior to my first visit and given my past bad experiences with other Neurologists, considering cancelling but I an so glad I did not. Dr Kelly took his time and listened to what I had to say to get to the root of my migraines and come up with a plan of treatment that didn't have me hiding in my room when an episode hid. He worked with me to find the right meds and gave me my life back. Follow up visits have been easy to schedule and wait times reasonable. My only complaint is the wait on the phone if you have to call.
I went to this ignorant "doctor" for the first time and I ended up leaving the room due to his uncalled-for insolence. I wish I left sooner since he already disturbed me by asking me non-health related, personal questions in a mocking manner when it wasn't any of his business. From whatever kind of nonsense he assumed about me without even knowing me at all, he felt the need to emphasize his questions more towards psychiatry even after telling him that I wasn't interested in drugs, especially of such kind. Later, after explaining my back pain and nerve related issue, he had the imbecilic nerve to tell me that my problem wasn't physical but psychiatric when I was indeed suffering from physical pain! I already mentioned that mental stress did cause me migraines but I also had the bodily problems that occurred at any time. He needs psychiatric help himself just for giving me this bad experience.
I really appreciated my time with Dr. Kelly. I moved back to the area with a myriad of health issues. Dr. Kelly took the time to try out different meds, suggested injections for pain- never any problem at all. It seems some patients are hypercritical or entirely too self absorbed- I realize Dr's can be too, but that was not my experience at all with Dr. Kelly. It's nice to know Dr's are human beings too, so what I found as down to earth, someone else found fault with, reminding me- we don't see things the way THEY are, we see them as WE are. That being said, I trust the issue was the patients, not the doctors.
