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.
- Psychosomatic Medicine
- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Gerald A Shiener - Posted on September 19th, 2018
Mom had a stroke in her frontal lobe. Prior to stroke, she was taking oxybutinen. One night she got dressed , packed up her things and walked away from the hospital. She walked 1 block to catch the bus home. The stroke impacted her ability to think and reason. Within 2 days at the hospital, she started hallucinating, seeing bugs on the floor and walls. Her family determined she may be having an allergic reaction to oxybutinen and had it discontinued. Within hours the hallucinations went away. The next morning, Dr Shiener with his residents and arrogance in tow, came in and spoke to my mom in a condescending manner and spoke to us in a dismissive manner without even reading her medical charts insisting we commit her the psyche ward. The stroke alone impacted her ability to think logically. Yes her walking away from hospital was not safe or logical, but we were confused as to why a person who had a stroke would need to be committed. Had he taken the time to review her charts prior, he would have known that oxybutinen caused her hallucinations and she was no longer seeing bugs. There is are some other concerns with Mr. Shiener as well. He should not have privileges at any facility .
Outstanding elder asessments & a very kind & learned psychiatrist
