Dr. Charles H Menzel 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 needed medication and therapy on-and-off for around 25 years. I have found psychiatrists who are good with their meds, but either don't do therapy or who are terrible at it. I have worked with a couple of good psychologists, and wished only they could prescribe. Dr. Menzel knows the meds for me better than any Psy MD I've ever seen and outshines even the best therapists I've used. I can't recommend him enough. He's so good, however, it's really difficult to be a new patient. If you can't, he can probably refer you to someone good.
There was nothing I disliked about Dr. Menzel. He is a very intelligent psychiatrist who truly cares about his patients. He returns phone calls in a timely manner & can be counted on to always be there for you. I trust Dr. Menzel as far as medications he has prescribed & for the help and advice he has given me over the many years I have been seeing him. He has helped me through the difficult times I have had with anxiety & living with a spouse who has bi-polar disorder. I would recommend him to anyone! He is one of the best doctors I have ever had!
I have been seeing Dr. Menzel for over a year now. When he took me on I was a very HIGH risk patient. Had been seeing another pych that was really just a drug dealer, never spent anytime exept for writing the scripts that I wanted him to write. I had left my foiance about a year prior due to infidekity and I took advantage of the previous doctor and wound up addicted to things I didnt even knew existed. So, finally about a year later, I decided I really needed someone who will really talk to me, take the time to listen to my story, get a correct diagnosis and continue to work with me as I continued to take my journey in life. Our first visit I was very honest with him, told him about the last Dr. and what had happened and that I am out of control and in need of help. He DID say he would take me on as a patient, however if I called early for a prescription, or show any signs of use, the only thing I could do is go to rehab and he'll see me when I get home. Needless to say, that never happened. Life happened. I continued to seehim faithfully, with panic attacks and issues with anger and he continued to just walk with me thru life as a guiding hand. I still see him until this day and I plan on seeing him for the forseeable future. He is a verycaring man that will make a plan with you on what your goals are and help you to make sure you get there..Kudos to my Doctor ,who has helped me through the thick and the thin of life.Thank you sooo much.
