Dr. Duke V Fisher 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.

If I could tell you what has happened to me I would but this is serious and I only share this info with family and Dr. Fisher. First of all, this is medication management ONLY. And because of my specific issue, this is exactly what I needed. So if you need talk therapy, you need someone else. He understands my situation and yes i do have to see him once a month, but that is to be sure that proper dosage is being met, not for insurance. I guess all in all it depends on the person and the PERSONAL reason for seeing him. For YOU, he might not be what you need. You may need more talk therapy. Some of us need to get to a certain level to continue our lives in peace.
I fully agree with all the input regarding this "doctor's" scam for insurance money. Though he seemed okay to me during the first few visits, once I started questioning the huge number of medications he prescribed for me during our 3 minute meetings (for which he is charging the insurance company for an hour), he became belligerent and basically mean. His attitude would be unacceptable from any kind of doctor, let alone a doctor in the business to help people with their mental and emotional problems! This isn't medical management; this is money management! I worry for those whose problems are more severe than mine who are now trapped in his care...
