Dr. Damon D Delston 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.

This is the worst doctor!!! He was suppose to evaluate me for anxiety and the medications I was taking. The very moment I sat down he said I stumbled and asked if I was drinking. Then he started thinking I was on other drugs. He would ask why do you have anxiety and he would not listen to a word I said and then said if I would come to another visit so he could evaluate me without my medication which is a benzo. He said my pupils were dilated when I have no clue how he could see that in the dark disgusting office he has in a apartment building where residents live. I thought I walked into an apartment building, not a location a doctor office would be. He made me feel so uncomfortable! He blamed my anxiety on my parents high school and that they did not teach them how to train them if they had a kid.!?!?He kept just staring at me and thinking of negative things to say. The guy really needs help and I also believe he needs to see his own psychiatrist. I don't advise ANYONE to see him! I ended up walking out. Instead of making me feel comfortable he just caused me to have more anxiety. The most terrible experience I've ever had to go through. He also had me in tears leaving his dingy little office!
I have been seeing Dr. Delston for over 4 years now and to this day I still have my weekly visits with him. Dr Delston had helped me overcome my depression and my suicidal thoughts , without Dr.Delston and his kind and compassionate ways , I would not be alive today! I am and always will be so grateful for this wonderful doctor who I know saved my life! Thank You , Dr.Delston for your most since compassion . I wouldn't trust my life with any other doctor!!!
I can't imagine the good reviews for this doctor. I found him cool, aloof and quite distant. I haven't a clue what transpired during the time spent and would certainly not recommend him to anyone who is looking for a compassionate doctor to help work through issues. The other postive reviews were probably written by relatives. Pass this one up. He could use a good psychiatrist himself.
