Dr. Dario M Zagar 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.

Misdiagnosed our daughter would not recommend Dr. Zagar, I would recommend finding someone else.
My daughter saw Dr. Zagar in January, I called my insurance company and made a formal complain. He took my 14 year old daughter in a room with out my permission and spoke with her, I thought he was running tests on her come to find out he was questioning her without another adult in the room. He did not do any of the tests that her pediatrician asked for then he decided to call a friend of his that was a doctor to consult on other matters. Worst doctor ever, I will be calling the State Medical Board, he doesn't know how to do his job!
I had the unfortunate experience to see dario zagar for two different medical issues. He is cold and callous. He never looks at you when you are explaining your symptoms â He is too busy typing every letter that comes out of your mouth on his computer. But, he really doesnât hear a word you say. The only thing zagar knows is to give you a neurological exam and if you can touch your nose and walk two steps forward, he dismisses your symptoms. The first visit he dismissed my symptoms and wrote two prescriptions, one for âfeel happyâ OTC pills and the other saying âgo have funâ. On my second visit, I asked him about a specific test that only a neurologist can interpret. He was not happy about my knowledge about the test and medical facts that I presented, he again only performed his neurological exam, ignored me when I told him that I had pain, never examined the complaints I presented, and dismissed all my symptoms. Then zagar told me that I needed a psychiatrist. No one deserves that kind of treatment. Rude and arrogant are an understatement.
