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.
- 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.

Cold and aloof, insensitive!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ghazanfar A Khan - Posted on April 22nd, 2017
My wife left his office after many of her meds were eliminated In without explanation. He said he never had ordered one of the meds but that was not true. In the car, she became extremely anxious and broke into tears. We went back into the office to explain what had happened to the nurse, who is very nice and competent. She found the med the doctor said he had not prescribed in her computer. He never even sent the prescriptions he did prescribe to the pharmacy and my wife was left high and dry since our calls to his office went unanswered. Her anxiety peaked at 170 so into the local ER we went. All in all his lack of compassion and his actions without discussing anything with us as to why he acted as he did left us vulnerable . Furthermore, he told my wife's PCP an inaccurate story about how she supposedly visited a doctor to get Xanax when in fact that doctor prescribed it during her hospitalization. Another woman in his waiting room said she had cancer and the doctor took her off the meds she had taken for years and was looking elsewhere for treatment.
