Dr. Edward I Gelber 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.

So I'm all for writing good reviews, but this needs to said to anybody who is thinking about having him as your psychiatrist. First off he doesn't take insurance, which sucks. So I end up paying $150 for 15mins of his time just so he can sit back in a very mnotone voice saying that I have server anxiety and that I need a therapy from him. That was the first thing, he doesn't even know me and he's diagnosing me like a mentally ill person. Sec, it was a hassle for me to see him every other month cause he's so about the money, every prescription was tight with no refills, making me after to do another appt just so he can get paid. Aweful. And also I'm all about having quick contact with my psychiatrist and psychologist, and when he charges $75 per phone call just if I have side effects of the med. that's wrong!!!! Guys out for Money and probably only cares if you pay him. 0 stars!!
Question: What do you call the guy who finishes LAST in medical school? .....Answer: Doctor. I guarantee you "Dr." Gelber is writing all of the positive reviews on this site. Do yourself a huge favor and read all the reviews ---especially those which are older. The older ones are true and clearly shows how small his practice is because these true reviews are over 3 years old. Strange all his positive reviews are recent. Yet AGAIN he has moved his office where he "practices psychology " Fourth time in 2 years. Anyone who would even CONSIDER providing therapy via videoconference is a joke. Never heard of this in my life. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Read ALL the reviews. He is the worst of the worst.
