Dr. Cory J Alfers has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.<br>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.

Great provider, can't recommend him enough
Self-verified patient of Dr. Cory J Alfers - Posted on March 15th, 2016
Dr. Alfers was kind, considerate, and worked with me, rather than tried to convince me, to find the best way to deal with my ADHD. Though I saw him mostly for med management, I know I can trust his opinion and would have been happy to work with him for more counselling, had I been in the market for that. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Very easy to work with

Dr. Alfers was easy to communicate with, I never felt like he was passing judgement. It was very easy to speak with him. I saw him for just about 4 years for ADD/ADHD and he really helped me understand how I was approaching my issues. We quickly were able to put together a plan and evaluate my progress. I have been extremely pleased with the progress I made and very to have worked with Dr. Alfers.
A very caring doctor

Dr. Alfers is friendly and empathetic. He was genuinely concerned about mental and spiritual state. I noticed the Dr. Alfers really connected what I told him from one visit to another. So there was continuity in my treatment. I felt that he was a caring doctor who took the time to know me and my health issues.
