Dr. Fred Hochberg 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.

Dr. Hochberg was the attending physician to my late husband, who presented with a glioblastoma at the age of 45 and died 8 months later. Hochberg treated both of us with, at best, indifference, and, at worst, inhumanity. He held out false hope that resulted in futile treatments that intensified my husband's suffering. My last encounter with him occurred when he confronted me in front of a waiting elevator and said, "We're stopping treatment. It's not doing any good." Without another word, he escaped into the elevator, and I never saw or heard from him again. I wrote an article about our experience in the Spring 1996 issue of The Pharos, titled "The Survivor's Tale." Read it and weep. Eighteen years later I still cannot forgive the pain Hochberg caused us both.
