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.

At my visit today, I commented to Dr. Steingo that he and his staff have been an incredible support team for me over 21 years of care, I feel blessed to have a caring and supportive dr who takes time to listen and hear my problems and work with me always. Over the years his staff has remained constant and continues to call Re: appointment reminders, help if medication needs refilled before appointment timed answer questions, etc The only problem I have is I cannot find more drs and staff to provide this level of care over this many years in other specialty areas. I feel truly blessed.
STAFF RESPONSE TIME IS A JOKE. GOT APPROVED FOR A MEDICATION AND THEY NEVER CALLED TO SCHEDULE THE NEXT STEP. GETTING RE-APPROVED FOR THE NEW MEDICATION AND STILL HAVE NO HEARD FROM THEM. I DO ALL THE BLOOD WORK AND JUMP THROUGH THE HOOPS FOR THEM (BECAUSE THEY DROPPED THE BALL) AND I CAN'T EVEN GET A RETURN PHONE CALL. DR STEINGO- IF YOU ARE SO GREAT & ARE HAVE NUMEROUS PATIENT PLEASE HIRE THE APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF STAFF MEMBERS TO SUPPORT THEM. LOOKING FOR A NEUROLOGIST? LOOK PAST DR. STEINGO. I REGRET MY DECISION TO BE HIS PATIENT EVERY WEEK. CURRENTLY 4 WEEKS WITHOUT MEDS AND NOT DOING WELL. I DON'T WITH THIS ON ANYONE.
I am ashamed to say that I don't usually write reviews. With that being said, I feel it is so important to share the experience I have had with Dr. Steingo and his staff, which includes Mindy, Melissa and Cathy. I am treated as a patient, not as a time slot. MS is a difficult disease and while I hate having it, I feel comfortable seeing Dr. Steingo and his staff. I am definitely in good hands.
LOVE- Dr. Steingo for all his concern and genuine care. Extremely intelligent!!
