Dr. Jay H Collier 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.

If I were asked about Dr. J. Collier's overall competence, knowledge, abilities or skill at relating to "consumers" on a human level, I would have a tough time giving a quick answer. As someone who was his patient for over five years, I feel I may have some small insight, but someone else could have had better or worse experiences with this physician. His support staff (nurses nurses, reception, etc were kind and helpful. He was sure to ask the appropriate questions to ensure I had access to the medicines which help me manage my condition. After his years at the practice where I saw him, he moved on and I was scheduled to see a different psychiatrist who had inherited his old office. I had heard good things about her. I was blindsided when she told me I was being treated for a disorder different than the one Dr. Collier had diagnosed me with over five years ago. The new doctor looked back at his notes and I had been re-diagnosed over a year earlier. I felt horrible for her, because she seemed upset as she watched me wheeze my way through an anxiety attack and try to hold back tears. Now I am left wondering if Dr. Collier was not comfortable telling me the new diagnosis, if he forgot, if it wasn' t important to him, if he thought he told me....
When I was nineteen years old, I started seeing Dr. Collier. He was one of many doctors I'd seen for depression, but he was the first who I felt actually had an interest helping me. He listened to my concerns, he thought outside the box, and he used medications with admirable knowledge and insight. He was the first psychiatrist to make me feel better!!
