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.

Our experience with Dr. Bonikowski (himself) was adequate. Dealing with his staff was a nightmare. The staff was not helpful when trying to get prescriptions filled. These were prescriptions that Dr. Bonikowski prescribed. After several follow up phone calls and a week later, the staff got rude and we still had no prescriptions! We were told (by the staff) that they were helping us as a courtesy and they had other patients so we would have to wait. The insurance company was more helpful!
