Dr. James S Wolf 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 mother has seen Dr. Wolf on four separate occasions for examinations, diagnosis and guidance related to Alzheimer’s disease. I attended all four visits as her caretaker. We both found Dr. Wolf to be a trusted, expert resource. He was very attentive to our needs with a great "bedside manner" in connecting with my mom and discussing difficult issues of dementia. He performed a physical neurological exam, cognitive exams, ordered several MRI/PET style procedures and walked us through results in detail. We were very happy with his services and those of his staff. I was initially concerned by reading several very negative reviews for Dr. Wolf on this site. But after the first visit—even after four visits—I couldn’t imagine having such a negative experience with him. He read material that I emailed ahead, was more punctual than most doctors (5 or 10 minutes after appointment time… I usually expect 15-45 minutes to be the norm), called me several times to discuss some items, and was generally wonderful to deal with. He did have a tendency to tell personal stories in support of describing life situations. I would prefer this to a doctor who’s just trying to get you out the door as quickly as possible. I was very pleased with Dr. James Wolf and would return to him without question.
This was an awful experience! I had to wait a long time and then when I went into the exam room my needs were not met. I left there with no diagnosis. He acted as if my problems were not important to him. He told me he had to move to another patient and walked out of my room. Do not go to him if you need medicine or any help!
What a reassuring pleasure.
