Dr. Craig S Woodard has the following 2 specialties
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.

Please do NOT go to this "doctor" and I use that term loosely. My father has Alzheimers and we left with no hope. MR. Woodard said that we should "take him home and let him die doing what he loves". After I bought a watch and monitored his health for 2 weeks. I figured out he wasn't getting any REM or DEEP sleep. I took him to a caring doctor who gave him medication to help his sleep. After another 2 weeks, he was 90% better. I would NEVER take anyone to see this man for any health issue. Lacking compassion is a massive understatement and he is NOT up to date on the latest research and news in his field. He needs to retire.
I've been a patient of Dr. Woodard since 2007. Not only did he properly diagnose my condition after I had been seen by 2 other physicians but he always puts in the special effort to make sure I'm not having any compications. I've even been in the ER and he came to check on me within 30 minuted of being notified that I was having complications. If your looking for a doctor who puts in the special effort to care about patients and a caring staff that does the same...then he's the one I would recommend.
I was referred to Dr. Woodard for tingling/numbness in my feet/legs. Upon arrival, his office staff was polite and effecient. My wait time was less than 5 minutes and his nurse was very nice. In the exam room, I found Dr. Woodard to be thorough and polite. He was glad to answer questions and he took time to listen to my symptoms. He went over previous test results and explained everything to me, as to what each test was looking for and the results. His credentials are impressive and I found him to be very polite and he seems to care about the patient. I would recommend him to friends/family. Maybe some others on this site just had a bad experience or misunderstood his efficiency as being uncaring. I would give him the highest rating.
