    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.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

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.

    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.

My son suffers from a seizure disorder. My son had his first visit with Dr. Nunez today at UC San Diego Health. There was no wait in the office. He was seen right away. Dr. Nunez asked for his complete medical history. He listened to everything I had to say and he asked numerous questions regarding my sons health and he also answered all of my questions. He did not rush us out of there. The office staff was helpful also.

No social skills, rude and cold

I went to the Temecula location to see a neurologist after minor findings in several MRI's. My condition is not serious and I did not expect much, but I wanted to meet with a professional who could talk to me about the condition and explain why or why not I should be concerned. He walked in and sat down, he looked at his computer while he mumbled his name, no eye contact, or even looking in my direction for that matter.. From the start he seemed like he did not want to be there. He suggested I do an MRI with contrast. I told him I did and then he finally reviewed the notes and saw that I was correct. He basically said your condition doesn't mean anything. He is the neurologist so he has the knowledge of why it does not mean anything yet he would not discuss the topic with me. He completely downplayed any hint of concern I had. He brought up unrelated issues that he saw in my notes (sensitive past health issues) as if he was trying to shift the focus of the meeting or take a jab at me. I just wanted to be treated like a human and have a person to person conversation and learn from the EXPERT. Instead I got a doctor who made me feel bad and like I was wasting his time. He should work in a lab, NOT WITH PATIENTS.

a dr that cares

Yes there was a slight wait time but know when it's your turn he will be all ears. He really listens and clearly explains his recommendations. There were 5 people in the office and each understood there disease better and were hopeful when they left. I left there fully trusting his experience and he keeps his eye on the latest research on multiple sclerosis. Wonderful to find a specialist that cares about you and doesn't rush the visit. A million times over ....he is worth the wait. Staff is A+ too.
