Dr. Cheryl T Dunn 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.

Docter Dunn should not be treating any one .i was misdiagnosed she gave so many medications that I did not need,for years ,these medication caused me medical problems that I will have for the rest of my life .When I begged her to stop with the medication that it was not helping me she refused ,I finally went to a Docter who listened to me and took me off all the medication.
I can see from the above review Doctor Dunn has not changed in her bedside manner or care of patients. I saw her many years ago and had to go to another Psychiatrist for many years to undo the damage and misdiagnosis she did. I was young and frightened then. Thanks heavens there is the internet now to tell our stories.
