Dr. George Scott II has the following 3 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.

When he first walked in and introduced himself, I did a double take. I said are you the Dr. He said yes, and I said well you are about the coolest Dr. I have ever been to, and I'm 67 yrs old. Anyway he makes you feel comfortable, talks to you like you are a regular person. Did not rush, I just loved him. He is my neurologist! Now he might have thought I was crazy, but I really liked him, and I would recommend him. He really seemed to know what my problem was.
Dr. Scott is a caring and knowledgeable doctor. He had been treating my Mother for 6 yrs. for Alzheimer's Disease when I myself went to see him. I saw how well he treated her that when I began showing symptoms of memory and cognitive issues I sought out his advise. He very quickly got the ball rolling, ran some blood work, did an MRI and neuropsychology testing. Within a month I knew my diagnosis and what I was facing. Keep in mind that it usually takes about 4-6 months normally to get in to a neuropsychologist to get tested but Dr. Scott realizing that I was subject to develop Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease, just like my mother, fast tracked everything. So in less than a month and a half I am already starting my Neuro and Cognitive therapy. Thanks to Dr. George Scott being persistent and expeditious, I may be able to slow down or even stop the progression of my Neuro and Cognitive health decline. As a side note, my Mother was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease when she was only 53 yrs. old, I have just turned 45 yrs. old. I would recommend Dr. Scott to my closest friends and family, as well as any stranger who is in need of neurological help. Thank you, Dr. Scott!!
