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.

I made an appointment with Dr. Glass when I began suffering from several neurological symptoms: Four episodes over a year's time of semi-paralysis of my legs, a drastic and sudden reduction in memory function during the previous four months, constant numbness in the arms and legs, enlarged lymph nodes, and hot lymph nodes on previous PET scans. An assistant asked several questions. When Dr. Glass finally graced me with his appearance, he asked about three questions, patted me on the shoulder and said, "You are suffering from postpartum depression. I'm 70. I was so ill that my daughter had brought me there. She was so angry that she was in tears as she took me by the arm as we left the office, after telling him not to dare filing insurance. Of course, he did!
I went initially for a second opinion on my very extensive, complicated list of symptoms to include neuropathy. At this visit I was told that he felt I had a rare disease called Erythromelalgia. He said he needed to do research and would get back to me in 2 weeks. Never happened. I actually had to go over his head to get a return call for him to say he couldn't help me.Later, I learned I needed a punch skin/nerve biopsy, and finding he was the only one around that does this, I had to literally beg over the course of several voice messages for him to agree to do it. I finally got a call from his secretary giving me an appointment...but, when I got there, an assistant who could not get off of his cell phone long enough to do the lower part of my leg, barely clipped the very tiniest top layer of skin---which I know was no more than 1 mm thick. As another assistant was walking by, he noticed the trouble the first tech was having juggling his phone, the tweezers and the clippers, he offered to do my thigh, which he popped out a section that was at least 6 mm thick, no problem!! PROBLEM: when my results came in they stated that both sections were 3 mm by 3 mm, which I KNOW was not even remotely possible. So, I believe something was tampered with to keep from having to redo the test.Also, at this appointment I mentioned the EM and Dr. Glass relayed through the first assistant that he never said anything about me having it...which I have the office notes to prove that wasn't so....he said he thought I only have neuropathy.I have called his office since and spoke to his secretary, who said she would return my call....but, have yet to ever get a call.My opinion of his lack of professionalism and uncaring attitude is enough for me to let as many people that I can know of my experience.
I waited 9 weeks to get an appointment with Dr. Glass. He walked into the room without having met or examined me and told me he knew exactly what was wrong with me. He had a diagonsis from reading my paperwork. He said I had a psychosomatic illness. No amount of negoitation could get him to consider other options or to run some tests. I his office left devastated. Months later I was appropriately diagnosed with Lyme disease with a Bartonella co-infection complicated by Mercury toxicity. All of these things could have and should have been within his realm to diagnose.
