Dr. Jacob B Doris 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 wanted to point out the inconsistencies in the review before mine, but the website says that's profane. No matter--any semi-intelligent person can see exactly what I'm talking about. As for my own review: I used to see Dr. Doris when he was a resident at UNR. He's a good doctor. I was going through a very confusing and painful period in my life, so I was occasionally a little difficult, but he was always very patient. He never laughed in my face.
This doctor labeled me a drug abuser in the VA because I reported him for laughing in my face after he told me I needed electroshock therapy. (This was over 15 0.5mg Klonopin). He told the treatment team that I was a borderline and that no meds would work or have ever worked for me. This isn't even true. I have records to prove it. The VA has been so hateful to me on account of this pitiful man. He went to college, I went to War! I went to college following war and became a Registered Nurse. I worked as a nurse as long as my mental instability would allow. I told Dr. Jacob Doris I was so depressed I considered a meth habit. He laughed in my face. I tried to get substance abuse help from the VA for months maybe even a year, I have proof. He kept me on meds that made me hear voices and told me it was just my thoughts. He should be jailed for what he's done. Please stay away from this doctor. He isn't safe. I cannot get fair treatment anywhere and I don't know where to turn. Don't let his weird ego do this to you as well.
