Dr. Kamel Ben-Othmane 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.

This man has helped me greatly. I had migraines when I was younger & I thought I had out grown them. In the last 10 years or so I started having headaches again & my husband plus my general practioner thought I needed to see someone, so my doctor arranged for me to see Dr. Ben-Othmane. He diagnosed me very quickly & thought I needed to start on oral medication & also Lidacaine injections at the base of the skull every 3 months. We have had to increase the oral medication several tmes to get to the right dosage. In my opinion Dr. Ben-Othmane truly seems to care about me & my concerns. He is always very attentive when I am talking and I feel very fortunate to have gotten in to see him and become one of his patients. I am very confident in his assesment of my condition. It is so nice to know that you don't have to live with migraines. It's very comforting to know that you have a doctor who really cares about you & about helping you. I think Dr. Ben-Othmane is one great doctor & one great guy!
