Dr. Daniel J Kirsch 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.

I had depression, mild paranoia and delusion. He dismissed paranoia and delusion and told me that hackers can watch us from our laptops and can steal information about us and gave the example of suicide of Tyler Clementi. He prescribed Sertraline 50mg which aggravated my delusions and I started having hallucination (visual+auditory). He discontinued treatment 'cause I had to move to another state in a month. A month after, I attempted suicide. In other words, I definitely had a problem besides depression and he dismissed it. He is not bright enough or he just does not care about his patients. I would not recommend this doctor at all. I have seen five psychiatrists and this guy was the worst in believing my word.
