Dr. Henry A Paul 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.

Before I met Dr Paul I was warned about how forward he could be.... I find it to be a breath of fresh air. I like that he tells me what I it is and doesn't sugar coat. I like that he is straightforward not rude and he speaks! He is a good listener and yes he is quick but that's because he knows what he's doing. Very good doc!!!!
I only gave one star to Dr. Paul, on the time He spends with me as a patient, because frankly, He doesn't have the time. Yet, this is a fact. He is very much in demand, and He is an extremely busy guy. Having said that, I consider myself extremely fortunate to have come to his office. His office staff, except for his assistant who is like an angel, and my personal psychotherapist, I find to be abrupt and even abraisive in their tone at times, yet helpful. The reception desk is very courteous and nice. Dr. Paul is extremely consciencious in his work. He follows up, returns phone calls promptly, always available and concerned about my well being. I don't think I am an exception. I very much get the impression He treats every patient the same.On a personal level, I get the impression He is a very funny guy. He is very personable and reasonable. He has a great sense of humor, very engaging, making you feel as if you've known him for years on end. He is accommodating, He listens, and He tells you His findings quickly. Don't bother Him with minutia, because He will cut you off in the middle of your sentence. Don't worry about it...You won't even notice it. I am sorry it took me more than fifteen years to find Him. He diagnosed me correctly in a short period of time, providing all His expertise. I still receive treatment from Him. It took me more than a year to write this review. The five minutes you spend in his office with him, in my opinion, are priceless. I view it this way: The time He can't spend with me, He'll give to another patient. Ask Him questions and He'll reply. (If I remember, I'll ask one, each time I see Him) Don't go overboard with more than one question. I asked Him once: If you were not doing this work, what would you like to do? "Play Drums". And with that, I left the office. I would recommend Dr. Paul to all patients who haven't had success in getting diagnosed correctly and quickly, in an atmosphere where the patient feels safe, and cared for with attentiveness.
dr. paul's books are great. they are just like he speaks in his ofice-right to the point and clear.
