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've been seeing smith for 2 years now. 8 never usually write reviews, but I have to about this because it is other people's mental wellness at risk. Everything was perfectly fine until she started switching medications. I explained to her that I was experiencing truly uncomfortable symptoms making it difficult to go to school and do everyday things. So I kindly told her staff I was going to find another doctor. Couldn't find one so I called back because I was running low on my meds. She told me the only way she would see me is if I apologized to her and the staff! I was being courteous by letting them know I wouldn't be a patient anymore. I still have no idea what to apologize and currently looking for another doctor. I've been putting up with the wait I understand that's part of it. She's also incorrectly wrote my prescription birthdate wrong several times. I definitely wouldn't recommmnd her. She doesn't really care about her patients....
I have been seeing Dr Smith for 6 months now, and cannot express my gratitude in words. Dr Smith is an incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable doctor. Based on the level of care that I've received from Doctor Smith I can say that she truly cares about her patients well being. While you may spend some time in the waiting room, it's for good reason, ams worth the wait. I have had five minute maintenance sessions, but more recently experienced a severe mental crisis. I certainly spent more than my allotted time, but she's was able to pick up on my crisis as soon as I walked in because of the way I spoke and expressed myself. It shows the attention she gives to patients. I moved to Austin and still make the sometimes bi-weekly trip into SA for my appointment. I would also-ran continue to see Dr Smith evening if she's were not in network with my insurance. I have full confidence in her decisions as a medical practitioner, which is not something I can say about only one other. If you are interested in an in and out pill mill, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for true therapy and recovery, I cannot recommend Dr. Smith highly enough.
Diagnosis was given an average because I can not say I was given an accurate diagnosis or an inaccurate one, the doctor said she thought I was bipolar then said I was not bipolar. Appointments are difficult to get, and the office staff is incredibly incompetent. The staff is extremely rude, When you walk into the office READ carefully all the disclaimers and notes on the window. Do you really want to go to a doctors office and be treated poorly by the staff, over charged and if you dare to complain about the error be told "if you dont pay this amount you will not be seen" You pay the incorrect amount because you need treatment and try to get them to fix it later. It will get fixed, but if you are not independently wealthy and can not afford to pay 3-5 times what you are supposed to pay upfront and hope for a refund in a timely manner do not go to this office. Promptness is a difficult one to rate, Do you want to see a doctor who rushes you out? You will wait a minimum of 1 hour to see this doctor sometimes as long as 2 1/2 hours after your scheduled appointment time. Do not call the doctors staff to warn them you will be 5 or 10 minutes late, they state you have to reschedule and charge you a no show fee. Just go into the office and wait your usual 1 -2 hours, if you point out you are late you will be charged for it. Dr. Smith is a very likable Doctor, despite the frustration I have with her staff I would recommend her. Unfortunately I can not cope with the way her staff treats me every time I go to the office. There is absolutely no excuse for that, not even an apology when they are proved wrong about billing. My last appointment was pretty much the final straw for me, I told the receptionist she was billing me incorrectly she said I was wrong and that it was due to errors on their part in previous treatments. I tried to explain this to her again, she insisted she was correct. I paid because again I needed treatment. Not more than 15 minutes after I left the office she called and told me I needed to come back because I was correct and the charge was wrong and I needed to pay it immediately. Find another doctor, Dr. Smith may be a great doctor but it will not benefit your mental health to see her staff. Regarding follow ups after visit- NEVER ONCE GOT A CALL on a follow up.
