Dr. Elizabeth K Bjornskov has the following 2 specialties
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 came to her office looking for help and support from my cluster headache which I've been suffering from for over 25 years. When in her office, she refused to listen to any symptoms; in fact, the cluster headache started while I was in the office, and when I requested an oxygen tank/mask (one of the only things which ease the pain) she rudely replied with a question "Do you see it anywhere in the office?" after which she continued asking me her list of questions with complete ignorance. I have never had such an experience which left me in tears. This appointment was by far a waste of my money. I do not understand how she got the job,and attempted to keep it after all these years, with the reviews that she's got. I would never EVER recommend this "doctor" to anyone.
Dr. Bjornskov was the worst physician I have ever seen. Do not go to her. I tried numerous times to tell her my exact symptoms and she kept cutting me off only to tell me what she thought my symptoms were and made a diagnosis based on that! She also put the incorrect symptoms/diagnoses in my end of visit summary, which is a HIPAA violation because it is inaccurate information in my medical record. She was too consumed with the fact that this was not an easy case and tacked it off to a migraine variant, really? Not for 10 months! She is a quack. She also deferred me to another physician after she asked me what my other medical issues were and she told me she would not work me up. What a waste of my time and money.
