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.

I read the reviews on Dr. Gold's site before I made appointment with him---I was expecting anything to happen when I went into the office---I had talked to Jordan several times before I went in the office and he was very kind and helpful to me so the day that I went into the office there was 2 of Dr. Golds sons working both of them were very nice to me answered all my questions help me with a couple of things that was not related to the office--What I had expected when I went there was totally wrong ---both of the sons could not have been any nicer and helpful--I have talked to them several times on the phone after I was in the office and they have never done are said anything to me that was un-kind at all--I feel the went out of there way to be helpful to me---I wish I could be treated that kind every where I went---I have the highest respect for both of his sons----and I and very thankful to them for the help the gave me.
My mother has dementia and we took her in to see him to see if he would be able to help us. He is completely unprofessional!!! I would NOT take my worst enemy to see him!! Very insulting and would not listen to a thing I would try and tell him. Walking around in no shoes!! When he talks to you he closes his eye. Waited over 2 hours for our appointment. I have no idea how he was able to get his license back.
this is not toward doctor gold at all ,myself i like him alot he has changed my life for the better,but his staff or should i say stepson and his wife are very rude ,and i have seen first hand how they make nothing into something,they dont handle things promplty nor do they care.i think it cra[p also when you need to speak with your doctor in which you are paying to see his staff will not let you nor can they help you,i am at the point of looking for a diffrent doctor and i dont want to but i drive to far and wait to long to get treated like trash by his staff
I usually have to wait a while for my appointment, I have decided that he is worth the wait. He asks questions, looks things up in books to show me what he is talking about and seems like a genuinely caring doctor. He is the first doctor to address my anxiety disorder and now I feel like I can live my life better and I am more at ease in this world. I thank God for Dr. Gold
