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.

Dr. Mitchell diagnosed my spinal fluid leak within 5 minutes of me telling him my symptoms. He had them do an emergency MRI to confirm it. It was a rare leak and it took 7 months to find it. When they told me at Vanderbilt there was nothing wrong with me it upset me so much I drove straight back to his office in tears. He assured that I did have a leak and he would find me a doctor to repair it even if I had to go the John Hopkins or the Mayo Clinic. He kept me calm through the entire time I was sick and I was able to stay here in Jackson and have my surgery.
My mother has been under his care for over a week now. After numerous phone calls with no response the man has let her lay in bed for several days in pain so severe that she is fainting.He finally came by yesterday and told her he was coming back in 2 days and check on her. I wonder why a person like that is a doctor. What if it was his mother in pain - - - - - laying in bed crying because he didnt do his job.
