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.

Long wait,.... but profoundly adept, and spends time with patients. Head on with diagnosis and able to lower my worries about my condition. Also offered treatment options that we weren't aware of. I would say this is a cutting edge office with diagnostics at the facilities, and a genuinely caring and capable doctor. We were recommended to see him by two separate physicians an internist and another specialist. I have the highest regard for dr Sharon and I couldn't recommend anyone more. Very impressive credentials and bedside manner.
Dr. Sharon is a brilliant yet down to earth Doctor that truly saved my life. I suffered from a terrible eating disorder and severe depression when I found Dr Sharon over 10 years ago. I had been to many other doctors before Dr. Sharon and was beginning to feel extremely hopeless. It took some time to find the right combination of meds to help me but eventually we found what was best for me. Addiction is not an easy road but it is possible to find the light at the end of the tunnel. When I met Dr. sharon I was 20 years old, sick and sad, and hopeless. Today I am 32, happily married with a career and planning to start a family. I couldn't have done it without him.
