Dr. Emmalyn A Bady-Mcdowell 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.

The first visit she was very nice, spent a great deal of time with me, gave me in encouragement and hope that I could feel better. She gave me her phone number and told me to call her in I needed her. I thought she was wonderful. Second visit, she was like a different person, totally unprofessional - she didn't even bother to sit down to talk. I was trying to tell her about something I thought was important and she actually rolled her eyes at me! She made discouraging comments - "You'll never get over that!" I will never go back to her and would not recommend her to my worse enemy. She was a jerk. One last thing - her staff was very nice & professional.
