Dr. Jeffrey L Berlant 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.

Without knowing my sister's medical background, he administered large doses of a drug, Geodon, for her extreme anxiety. She has been diagnosed with dementia.The first sentence when reviewing Geodon says "not to be given for dementia". Subsequently she has suffered 2 massive sub dural hematomas and is slowly recovering and may never regain her former cognitive and physical abilities!
I believe that any patient of Dr. Berlant's feels he/she is treated as an important person. Dr. Berlant should give other physicians a workshop in how to listen, analyze the "whole" person, and remember the narrative of one's life. He recalls every medication I have taken in the past nine years! Who wouldn't want a physician with his intelligence and caring?
After five long years of severe depression, being suicidal and five different psychiatrists without being diagnosed or treated successfully, a friend of mine directed me to Dr. Berlant. In his initial visit, he diagnosed me correctly and within a few short weeks was beginning to treat me successfully. While he has told me that I have always been difficult to treat clinically, he has always been persistent and relentless in giving me the best possible health care. His concerns and caring go way beyond psychiatry. My primary care physician is always amazed at how much interest he takes in me as his patient. He looks at his patients and their health care wholistically. This man has twice saved my life, I owe him everything. And as I recently told a friend, he is not "probably the most intelligent person I know, he "is" the most intelligent person I know. If you are looking for a psychiatrist, you will not find one better than him.
