Dr. Francis J Odonnell III 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.

horrible experience... specifically asked scheduler if he handled my type of need, and was told yes... after taking my money, was told by Dr. that he couldn't handle my problem. He was actually nasty and rude, and brought me to tears... I even asked for a reference of whom might be able to assist me, he gave some offhand answer about a hospital out of town... horrible, nasty, little man.
Never see this doctor little knowledge and little basic manners

Let me just paraphrase this by saying this I have had 5 concussions in the past and have seen a top pediatric concussion specialist in the nation back home in Wisconsin. I am a student at OSU now so when I believed I had a 6th concussion I went to the campus health center and they diagnosised me with a concussion. They then referred me to dr O donnell bc they thought it was a severe concussion. My first complaint: If he suppose to be a concussion specialist why are their no light dimmers ( not only do people with concussions have sensitivity to light but people with other neurological issues have it as well) My second complaint: When I told him I had my mom on the phone he told me to hang up and have her come to the follow up. I proceeded to say she’s from Wisconsin and will not be able to come. He was very annoyed when I would not hang up. My third complaint: He would interrupt me when I was answering his questions My fourth complaint: He proceeded to tell question my diagnosis of disautonomia (which was diagnosed by two doctors who trained at mayos and are top in the country) My fifth complaint: He gave me no treatment plan but to sleep. The general practitioner who diagnosed me gave me a full packet on concussion treatment. In my past experiences with concussion specialist they would tell me to drink a certain amount of water and electrolytes a day. They would also give me a step by step plan of how to increase your activity based on your symptoms. They also would help with getting accomidations and working with teachers as well as giving you a full informational packet in concussions. It’s sad that all his advice was was for me to sleep. My final complaint: I was wearing a baseball cap and he literally ripped it off my head so he could check my eyes. I was purposefully wearing it to shield my eyes cuz I was very sensitive to light. The fact that he didn’t even ask if I would remove my hat is very rude and mannerless.
Avoid at all costs

I would not recommend this "doctor" to my worst enemy. Condescending, in bed with drug companies, not at all concerned about patient's welfare, gave his totally incorrect opinion in an accident case which compromised it's outcome. Wish I had read all his negative reviews which describe him to a T. Avoid at all costs.

Dr. O'Donnell is arrogant, condescending and dismissive. I thought that maybe I misread him after my initial visit for debilitating post head injury with LOC headaches, vertigo and visual issues. I told him I was having a blinding headache's and vertigo at work and was there anything he could prescribe to help break it up. He said I will give you dexamethasone but never told me what it was. I got to the pharmacy and there were 10 pills and I found out they were steroids which made no sense to me. When I went for a follow up visit he seemed annoyed when I said the meds prescribed at my first visit were not helping. He did not address or prescribe anything for vertigo even after I contacted the office again after my second visit. I asked him to explain what could be going on neurologically after my head injury and his response was, "You had a concussion and now you have headaches". I wish I had looked up reviews prior to seeing him. So many people had the exact experience that I did, and it is especially frustrating when you are experiencing neurological issues. AVOID this doctor.

Worst Doctor I have ever seen...EVER. He is rude. Interrupts you while you are attempting to answer his questions. Comes and goes out of exam room without explanation. Seems really uninterested in actually helping you. During an exam, he actually caused my neck to hurt because he was so "rough" in his manner.
