Dr. Emmanuel A Perakis 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.

I was referred to this doctor by my primary care. First, the man seemed more in need of therapy than me. He seemed depressed, distracted and completely uninterested in anything I had to say. The whole time he was playing with his laptop and called the front desk twice to see if the internet connection was fixed. I was only there for half hour, he told me I don't need to see him but he can prescribed some anti-depressants if i want. How someone can come to that conclusion after half hour of half talking to me and half talking to his laptop, i'm not quite sure, but it was a waste of my time and money, that's for sure! I told him that I didn't think he seemed interested in helping me and seems to preoccupied with his own problems and, of course, he got defensive. God forbid you should dare to speak up if you feel that you're not being treated right!
I have been seeing Dr. Perakis for approx. 5 years now. He is easy to talk to, knowledgeable and very east to reach via phone. He calls back promptly, is never pushy and is seriously everything someone could want in a doctor. I've also had contact with a few other professionals on his staff for myself and children and they too were great to work with.
I've been seeing Dr. Perakis since 2006 for general anxiety and depression.He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Perakis himself is very easy-going, knowledgeable and a great doctor. Just talking with him is relaxing! He is a caring doctor who talks about your issues and doesn't just send you away with medication. I am glad to have him as a doctor.
