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.

Chris DeGiorgio was my son David's doctor for many, many years. David was disabled and had severe seizures (from chemo), but he was able to see the aura of goodness surrounding Dr. D. He always hugged him and was never afraid of any procedures . Dr. D has the patience of the saint, the fortitude of a mountain climber and the will to cure everyone he meets. His patients and their problems are never far from his thoughts. Our beautiful David was lost to a seizure and Dr. D. took the loss as hard as we did. I think his dedication gave David many extra years, some of them wonderful. Chris DeGiorgio is everything a doctor should be.
