Dr. David E Drake 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 psychiatrist won't approve but a 30-day script for your medicine and has you come every 30 days minimum and tries to originally set you up for every two weeks, without even having a normal doctor visit that first time or without even reading what his student teacher wrote about me after that first visit. I have a mail order pharmacy that asks for a script of 3 months of medicine and 3 refills at a time. This doctor won't do that, but will only write scripts for 30 days at a time!!. And I have lots of meds! So when it costs so much for a 3-month prescription, I would be paying 3 times that, plus paying for seeing him every single month, whether I need it or not! He has his dogs in the office and has lots of rules that you have to obey and not object to. The student said he would also try to get me off the meds in place of a holistic substitute. I was there for hours the first time, filling out forms, listening to his 4-yr. assistant ask you many, many questions that you had to answer for him to write down for the doctor, and I had to read many pages of articles about the doctor and lots of rules in a notebook that you have to abide by. The student wasn't treating me in place of the doctor--he was just recording info. for the doctor to read later. I was there for about 3 1/2 hours, met the Dr. for not even a whole minute, where he introduced himself, asked if I had any questions and then asked if it was ok to have his dogs there and I said no, so he let the office girls note that and hurried back to his office. Too many strange things--even another doctor suggested I find someone else.
This guy needs to be banned from practicing psychiatry. He needs to be institutionalized! Definitely has issues himself. What doctor makes you take off your own shoes and put in his special shoes before entering into his office? He does! DON'T GO TO THIS MAN!!!! Seriously folks, read the reviews.....he's awful! There are much better psychiatrists out there...he will only make you worse. Save yourself....
