Dr. Elizabeth C Smith 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.

Dr. Smith is the worst, most unprofessional doctor I have ever encountered! I took my 70 year old mother, who has mild dementia, to see her. The whole process was a joke and really, it's malpractice waiting to happen. Dr. Smith sat behind her desk, the whole time, never rising to greet us or examine my mother! No one took her vitals, nor did any muscle testing -- at a neurologist! A basic memory test was given, but I'm pretty sure my 5 year old child could have done that. Her desk was covered with paper files and her office was a total mess. After the "exam", I called the office to talk to Smith to fill in some blanks from the appt. since my mother is a poor self-reporter. I was told by the office assistant that Smith does not talk to people on the phone -- ??? -- and I need to fax my comments and questions. What if I didn't have access to a fax machine? Then, I was told that even though I faxed those questions, Smith won't talk to me because I'm not my mother AND that I needed to bring my mother in for an appt. to talk to her. She cited not wanting "miscommunication" or "going behind the patient's back". A patient with dementia!!! She clearly wanted my mom to pay for another office visit! It took her 3 weeks to send the chart note to the internist!! Why is she is practice by herself? Because no other physician wants to be associated with that kind of poor medicine. Stay away from this doctor.
She is not nice. Her staff are not nice either because they know that they can get away with it. She most likely has written all of the positive reviews on this site herself with the exception of the one, but that person may have been smart by using that review as insurance against her after reading all of the others. She and her staff actually have no empathy. Don't let them fool you. Hopefully vitals.com comes up on your Google search. It didn't on mine. Boy am I sorry. Stay away. They will all abuse you somehow in time.
