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.

Rude office staff. The doctors only care about writing prescriptions and getting you hooked on them isn't their concern. Find doctors to help you not hurt you. Even though there aren't many choices through the insurance providers, there is the choice to choose health care that cares not drugs ! God bless&good luck to all who also suffer,to ease the pain
They just like to write scripts and don't care about treatment and what's really going on. Very rude office staff in person and on phone.Dr mendehlson isn't even who you get to see .and when you do that first time or two going there...he doesn't even look at you just writes scripts and sends you on your way.not where you go for accurate care because nothing is followed up .
Dr. Mendelsohn is a caring & knowledgable professional whenever I am in his office he has a way of making you feel comfortable about the future no matter what that future is. His listening skills are remarkable and he knows how to be experience and observant at the same time. Thank you Dr. Mendelsohn - for all you are doing for me and my spouse right now.
