Dr. Henry J Mulder 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 literally just had to contact a lawyer to communicate with Dr. Mulder. He ignored my concerns about my treatment multiple times, refused to back what what he told me in sessions on paper, and finally stopped returning my calls completely. Avoid at all costs, I'm suffering from more anxiety over this situation than the ones that drove me to seek help in the first place.
After being a patient for over three years I finally had enough of his arrogance attitude not to mention if you're 5 min late it's $125 bucks but he can cancel while you're there and you have no choice to but reschedule and don't get me started on the Skype appointments where he'll cut you off mid sentence and say doors on the right see you in three months.i have since gotten another dr and found I was on twice the recommended doze Mulder had me on.
Based on my experience, I would say that I believe that Dr. Mulder has the best interest of his patients in mind. He is has a very professional manner, almost to the point of not being as personable as I would like from my care providers; however, I will admit, that overall, I have not come across too many personable physicians in my life (i.e., âgood bedside mannerâ). For all the medications that were first prescribed to me (different than what I was taking previously under a different physicianâs care) by Dr. Mulder, I was having a serious side effect, and I mentioned it a number of times, and got a response that the side effect was atypical. I mentioned this a number of times, mostly through Dr. Mulderâs assistants in the office who relayed the message to Dr. Mulder, although once I told him directly about the problem at one of my appointments. I was thinking that the side effects may be temporary and normal for someone starting on some new medications, but in hindsight I now know it was more than that. After repeatedly telling Dr. Mulder and his assistants that the side effects were intolerable, I was told by Dr. Mulder through his assistant that the problem I was experiencing had to be related to something else, so he suggested that I go to my primary care physician and have myself checked out. I then tried to make an appointment with my primary care physician and had difficulty in making an appointment on short notice because they didnât have any appointments available, and besides I was a new patient with this physician and they werenât amenable to having me come in on a specific problem because I hadnât yet had an initial consultation and physical with this doctor. Additionally, the scheduling nurse told me that based on my condition described on the phone, of which she said was evident based on the obvious symptoms she heard in my voice, she was strongly recommending that I immediately go to the emergency room and get checked out. I found myself in a very difficult situation/predicament (between a rock and a hard place), and I couldnât just stop taking the medications all together because I had a serious mental health condition that I was being treated for, and besides taking yourself off your medications, can in itself cause severe side effects. My only recourse at this time was to go to the emergency room, regardless of what it may cost, so that is what I did. The hospital did a thorough evaluation of me, including checking vitals, chest X-ray, and CAT scan. Their conclusion in the end was that I was having a severe anxiety attack and they gave me an injection of a medication to calm me down. The rest of that evening I was calm and had a good nightâs sleep, but when I awoke the next day, the same bad side effects returned, so I called Dr. Mulderâs office again and informed them of the emergency room visit and the current intolerable side effects I was still experiencing, after which Dr. Mulder prescribed a medication to control my anxiety â the latter helped a little bit, but it didnât solve the problem. Because my appointment with Dr. Mulder was a few weeks away, I next tried again to make an appointment with my primary care physician, explaining to them that I had gone to the emergency room and still had symptoms that were intolerable and it concerned me. The PCP agreed to see me, and he checked all my vitals, and said he didnât observe anything that was of concern, and he commented that if the evaluation I had at the emergency didnât show anything, I shouldnât be over concerned. I asked him if he could prescribe something to me similar to what they injected into me at the hospital, and he said no, and I should just continue taking the new medications prescribed by Dr. Mulder, and perhaps double the daily dosage and see if that helps. At my next appointment with Dr. Mulder, he told me that he was going to take me off one of the three (now four) medications he had originally prescribed for me because he researched it further and discovered that the drug being dropped (a newer medication on the market) had a chemical that could be causing the side effects I was experiencing. As can surmise by now, I went through a lot of grief, and expenses, trying to get my side effect problem resolved, and it took quite a while to reach that point. I donât know what advice Iâd give to readers, other than to persevere, and keep giving feedback to your physicians if you are suffering intolerable side effects, and to not give up hope, because eventually the problem will get resolved; however, in the meantime you may just have to tough it out, and struggle through the side effects while you keep voicing you concerns to your care takers. My experience was a difficult one, but I am not going to blame it on the physicians who I am sure are extremely busy, especially with their more difficult cases, and these practitioners and their office staff were just making their best judgment based on the information they had, and were following standard operating procedures. My situation is now stable and I no longer have bad side effects, other than just being a little light headed in the morning after taking my medications the night before.
