Dr. John N Kamphaus 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'm not a doctor but I think he is a good doctor. The problem I have is I have bipolar disorder and other doctors have prescribed me lamictal and valium for my symptoms. I had to burst into tears to get him to spread rice me 10mg valium a day. He keeps wanting to press antidepressants on me when I know from experience they don't work. He thinks everyone has addictions problems and I don't. If I was an addict I could get coke, heroin ..whatever I want and I don't need a psych to act like asking for sonething is drug behavior when other doctors have prescribed it in the past. Some doctors say valium isn't a long term solution for chronic anxiety but no matter what they prescribe is a long term prescription and valium is cheap. If I was an addict I wouldn't need to pay a doctor 200 and hour for meds when I'm trying to help myself. I would just pay a friend to get me real drugs.
Zero eye contact with patients, constantly banging on his laptop while you're trying to explain your needs, complete disregard for differences of opinion. Will change meds, doses so fast that you become a lifeless disaster and if you question his decisions, God help you. He drones on in complete robotic, monotone fashion when he does address you. Otherwise, you're just one more experiment for him to play with.
He is a control freak. There is no office staff and no way to make an appointment unless you leave a message for him. There is never anyone else there (spooky) but you have to wait forever for the delicate genius. I came with a diagnosis and all he keep doing was renewing my prescriptions. He has no bedside manner and I felt like he never really listened to me. When I was in crisis he yelled at me over the phone and asked he what I thought he should do (?!?!) He sounds like he is half dead. It is a relief to have a new doc that listens and knows what he is talking about. Stay away!!
