Dr. Deirdre D Elliott 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.

Let me start with this. My family and I have gone to some of the best Doctors in San Diego and I have family in the medical and insurance field. This is a warning for someone looking for an Honest Doctor. She does have knowledge about her field but seems to lack a moral compass. At first glance she was polite and welcoming and straight to the point something I appreciate. However when it came to billing and I asked about being covered she was very vague and gave the impression I would be fine. I was clear that I would not be able to afford the sessions unless covered by my insurance. She was fine to book multiple appointments with me. After a few sessions I found out I was not covered. I immediately halted all sessions. Due to the economy my hours were cut and I had a family emergency I was told I could be put on a payment plan. However she had my bill sent to collections. I had made multiple attempts to contact her billing department but the only times they would respond was when I was at work. When I finally did reach her she was hostile and rude. I have never heard of or encountered such a two faced human being. If you are ok with someone that won't be upfront with you about billing and has general knowledge in her field by all means go. However I am of the belief that how you do anything is how you do everything. How she handled this was rude unprofessional and deceitful. I am not going to repeat what she said to me over the phone but it was incredibly rude and hurtful as if she had taken what I had personal confided with her as a doctor and used it against me. I have done my best to be fair with the other rating on her service with ease of appointments and promptness. This is the first time in my life I have ever written a negative review about anyone or anything I hope this puts things in perspective. Anonymous patient.
