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 was called in to my Suboxone appointment this week only to be notified that the best Doctor I have ever met in my life, and one of the most craing doctors and human beings I've ever encountered was no longer going to be working there and that they were shutting down the Suboxone Program at CBM. They gave me a very empty explaination and seemed short and cold. I never rellapsed ever during my visits with Doctor Jarvis.. He is a great person and really seemed to listen and care about my progress- Not judge and push pills. This guy never pushed pills and was very straight forward on every visit. They did not refer me to any other clinic, physician, doctor, ect... It is very harmful and dangerous to stop taking Suboxone and it often results in numerous side-effects the worse being rellapse. They least they could have done is been honest and shown some compassion for their patients, but instead just called us all in and booted us out. Dr Jarvis is a wonderful man and I really wish I knew what was going on..
I have a long history of problems with generalized Anxiety disorder and panic attacks. As an adolescent, my mom took me to Oaklawn to see their Psuchiatrists. I always felt like I was treated more like a "Mental case" at Oaklawn and would often be switched around from pill to pill even when it may not have benefitted my current situation...as an adult I was introduced to Dr. Douglas Jarvis in 2007 because of the return of my previous panic attacks. it had been years since I had been to Oaklawn and I had pretty much given up on any Psychiatrists, due to feeling like something was missing and that I wasn't being heard...It is the year 2012, I have now been seeing Dr. Jarvis for about 5 years. I think he is a wonderful Psychiatrist! he has always been very Patient with me..never pushing medications on me without my consent.he also never made me feel like a "Mental case"..he is also very funny and caring! I recommned this doctor to anyone struggling with anxiety or panic attacks.
