Dr. Jacob C Tony has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

My son came to his practice with hand problems. From my understanding his condition wasn't diagnosed but sure could have had some pain killers. After about 4-5 doctors no one has done nothing but suggest what it 'Might" be. They all wanted to prescribe pain killers.. My son has been going to different doctors and by now could be addicted to prescription pain killers. As a mother I'm very disappointed with how this areas doctors, are treating this son. May I also add, I do have another child with a seizure disorder. Many have asked me why I don't take this child to any doctors in this area. Why do I drive 100's of miles just for a 30 minutes office visit. WHY???? This is why. I don't feel you have enough competition so you don't care. Just like with my son with the hand and arm problems. I pray that Iowa City takes my son and goes well above what Peoria doctors have done. But glad you got to hit the insurance and got your co-pays. And pushed his religious beliefs on my son. He was there for a doctor appt. not church sermon....
