Dr. Dan O Ioanitescu 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.

My experience is very mixed here. Dr. Dan seemed very distracted during our visit. He was interrupted by his phone no less than 4 times during my first and so far, only, session with him. He seemed very attentive and knowledgable otherwise. Then when finished he told scheduling that he wanted to see me in 2-3 wks and they gave me a card telling me to call back in a week and a half to schedule it! When I did, I wasn't able to get an appointment for 2 months!!! This doesn't work for me. The medication he prescribed didn't work and needs to be altered. I advised them of this and was told to do a walk in and given the day to do that. So I come in early before business hours to get my place in line and wait 2 and a half hours before a nurse comes to get me and tell me that walk ins are for crisis only and not meds! She gives me a number to call for meds and says she will take care of my meds issue and apologizes for my wait. 2 days later she contacts me that the script is ready. I am now in the waiting room awaiting a 1 o'clock appointment for a counselor and it is 2:07. To say that the Phoenix Center protocol is frustrating is beyond description. I hope Dr. Dan is worth it. Getting the initial appointment took a phone call, an appointment with a counselor, another appointment with a counselor with the same questions and staff that was less than friendly and appeared to hate their jobs. On top of this I find that I also need to see a nurse! The organization of this place is ridiculous. Be prepared!
Was referred to this psychiatrist by a close friend shortly after the death of my 21-year-old daughter in a sudden, unexpected, and traumatic manner. Had seen several other psychicatrists before him, but they were all lacking in one area or another. I found "Dr. Dan" as he is lovingly referred to due to an inability for anyone to either spell or pronounce his last name. I have made it a point to do both, as he is quite worthy of such a level of respect. He has always made himself available to me, sought to meet each need within his realm of practice of psychiatry, authority, education, plain common sense, and his biggest asset of all, compassion. He takes the time to listen to me, draw more from what I have said by asking related questions, advising me to the best of his ability to do so, suggesting various paths to reach the goals I wish to obtain, but always with an unmistakable, genuine compassion for my past, present, and future circumstances. I do not believe I could have survived the years following my daughter's death without knowing that he was in charge of caring for me psychologically and that he actually CARED about the outcome. I have heard the same things regarding this area of compassion within him from first the woman whom initially referred me to him, but from other patients, as well. I have never heard of anyone who saw him professionally to have been disappointed with his services in any way. I can only give him the highest possible recommendation and commendation for his outstanding care of myself.
