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 only met with Dr. Alvarez once and the experience was good. However, I ran out of an rx and didn't realize it until I went to the pharmacy to get the order. I called the office to see if I could get a refill but the receptionist advised me since it had been 2 months, I couldn't get a refill without an appt. first. I explained to her I was leaving town and completely out, the Dr. knows I've been on the medication for 2 years already; if there was anyway I could get an emergency refill & I would schedule an appt. as well, she told me it was my responsibility to keep track of when my rx refills run out. After a bit of back and forth and me asking her if there were any other options, she said she'd as the Dr. and call me back. When she calls back, she tells me the Dr. said no I could not get a refill without seeing him, then offers me two morning appts. for the following day. Unfortunately, I would be at work during those times & since I am already leaving early (to leave town as previously mentioned) I couldn't make it. I asked if there was any way I could come in after 1pm, she said no, there's nothing available but those two times. I said, "Ok, so if I begin having withdrawals when I'm out of town & have a medical emergency, the Dr. isn't going to consider or care about that? I'm going to need to find another solution." Her response was simply, "Ok well, you can go ahead and find another Dr." So, I guess that's what I'm going to have to do.
