Dr. Elizabeth M Faulconer 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 you are truly seeking to get down to the bottom of medication issues, while processing complex issues, Dr. Faulconer is a good choice. I think her fees for an hour are reasonable, plus she goes out of her way to coordinate with other physicians. She expects patients to be committed to their care. She has a tremendous amount of experience.
Dr. Falconer seems very knowledgeable, compassionate, and she spent a good deal of time with me. But I feel the amount of time was not sufficient to make the diagnosis that she made. Since then, I feel the diagnosis was wrong. But now, it is in my medical records and it affects me like I'm a stereotyped actor... It prejudices other providers who now see me. I'm not sure how to correct my own PMI!
Sometimes, well often, I am uncertain what she think about my problems. I think she likes me, but I avoid difficult subjects, and to some extent she lets me do this. Maybe it is because I am trying to deal with a lot right now.
I do not understand what the last person meant. Hope they come back and say. I think she is smart and caring. We have disagreed on some things, but she does not hold it against you. She knows what I am going though and is trying to help me. It is good to have someone who cares and doesn't try to tell me what to do.
