Dr. Grant G Haven has the following 2 specialties
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.

I have been working with Dr Haven for just over a year now, since a traumatic event happened to me last August. I had a history of depression and severe migraines before this that were always hard to reign in and diagnose properly. He was able to do that and to understand why the treatments I had tried in the past weren't the best approaches. He is one of the few doctors that hasn't run out of options, hasn't thrown up his hands in despair, etc. His manner is empathetic and he is quick to adjust medications quickly when he knows they are just not right (i.e. making quality of life miserable). I am prone to abandoning my meds when I'm frustrated and not seeing progress, but I give him credit for the encouragement and tremendously kind guilt trip he gives me when I start to lean that way again. He is a great listener, he has a way of inferring what I'm trying to say but have a hard time communicating. Most importantly, he lets me have a role in my own 'personal medical destiny' (a mouthful to say). I have tried many things, researched many things, and often bring questions to him such as 'would this treatment be okay to try?'. He never shoots me down or patronizes me for my suggestions/questions just because I don't have the expertise that he does. He considers my ideas and explains the pros and cons of each one. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a Psychiatrist who will stick with you, not give up on you, and have empathy and understanding for what life is like when you are stuck in tough places.
