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.
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.

Dr. Busch you cultivate a corrosive doctor-patient relationship. You go see patient's at no name medical systems then spend 5 mins with them and don't even give a chance to talk with you. Then you lure them to your office and you spew out drugs.Your office does not even look professional, signs all over, your wife's art gallery in the front. I would think with all the medicare fraud your "Hospitals) are involved in, maybe you play a role too. With all the so-called expertise you have been recognized for and all the $$$$ you are raking in,you should retire. Your PA has more compassion then you. I am copying this to every news station, medical system and influence in this discipline. My hope this puts pressure on you to start asking questions about your pitiful practice.
HELLO !, I'VE BEEN WITH DR.BUSCH AND THE DOCTOR WHO WORKS WITH HIM; DR. JOHN MC.DIVVITT NOW FOR 7 YEARS. HE IS A GREAT DOCTOR !!!! BEST DOC I'VE EVER HAD ACTUALLY. I HEAR SOME SAYING THAT HE ONLY LISTENS FOR FIVE MINUTES AND IF HE DOES; HE'S WRITING DOWN EVERYTHING YOUR SAYING AND WHAT'S THE BEST TREATMENT FOR YOU. HE LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!! AND, YES; WITHOUT HAVING TO TALK TO ME FOR OVER TEN TO FIFTEEN MINUTES !!!! HE IS VERY POLITE AND CONCERNED FOR YOU TO GET WELL. AND YES, HE IS A VERY BUSY DOCTOR AND THE ONLY REASON WHY, IS BEACAUSE HE IS SOO GOOD AND WANTS TO TRY HIS BEST TO HELP EVERYONE HE CAN. THAT'S WHY HE HAS DR.JOHN HELPING HIM IN HIS OFFICE. HE IS ALSO VERY KIND AND HELPFUL AND REALLY REALLY CARES ABOUT PATIENTS TOO. IT'S HARD SOMETIMES TO GET THROUGH TO MAKE APPOINTMENTS AND SPEAK TO THE FRONT STAFF AND THATS BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST HAVING TO KEEP UP WITH A VERY GOOD DOCTOR, WHO THE PUBLIC IS DEMANDING TO WANT TO SEEK CARE FROM. IF YOU JUST TRY TO WORK WITH HIM AND HIS STAFF BY KEEPING YOUR APPOINTMENTS AND CALLING IN YOUR REFILLS A COUPLE OF DAYS IN ADVANCE, THEN THINGS SHOULD GO WELL FOR YOU. I'VE NEVER HAD TO WAIT MORE THAN AN HOUR, IN THE WAITING ROOM TO SEE HIM. AND IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THAT, JUST REMEMBER WHAT CENTURY YOU LIVE IN !!! MOST ALL THE TIME THOUGH, I'VE ONLY HAD TO WAIT 30 MINUTES, GIVE OR TAKE. THE ONLY ONE THING THAT BOTHERS SOMETIMES IS THE FRONT STAFF NOT ANSWERING YOUR PHONE CALLS OR GETTING BACK WITH YOU. ALSO WHEN THEY TURN OFF THE PHONES EARLY; LIKE SOMETIMES EVEN 2 TO 3 HOURS BEFORE THE OFFICE CLOSES. THAT IS ONLY THE FRONT STAFF THOUGH. THEY ARE VERY CURTEOUS WHEN YOUR AT THE OFFICE THOUGH. I THINK THEY MAY NEED JUST A LITTLE MORE HELP, TO SOLVE THOSE THINGS I SPOKE OF EARLIER. OVERALL, I GIVE DR. BUSCH A 5.0 !!!!! ALONG WITH DR. JOHN. HE IS WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!! AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU. MY RATINGS FOR THE DOCTOR ARE A 5. MY RATINGS FOR THE FRONT STAFF WITH APPOINTMENTS ARE A 4.
