Dr. Kathleen S Mccahill 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.

Called to make an appointment, because the neurologist I have gone to is just prescribing me narcotics grade medication. I was told on the phone, that Dr. McCahill won't see me. So if I feel I am being misdiagnosed, she isn't one of those doctors who might lend her expertise and either identify or confirm my initial diagnosis. My co-worker recommended her highly because her family has gotten excellent care from Dr. McCahill and this is what I ran into.If you plan on making an appointment with this office - don't be honest and tell them you've received care elsewhere. I'm baffled as to why a doctor would be afraid of seeing someone who wants to know what's wrong and not be doped up on prescription drugs.Thank you.
I had a sudden onset of typical MS symptoms. My physician ordered an MRI of my brain which verified this diagnosis. He then referred me to Dr McCahill. Her first available appointment was a three month wait. When I did finally get in to see her she spent all of 10 minutes (in which time we were interrupted and she actually stepped out of the room for a few minutes)with me. She decided that my life was very stressful(isn't everyone's) and that my symptoms were not important. She told me that until my episodes lasted at least two weeks don't call her because it's not MS. I trusted her-after all she is an MD!!! Six months down the road my physician ordered another MRI. The lesions in my brain are now more than doubled!!! I am now seeing Dr Andrew Ta and getting the treatment that I need. Perhaps Dr McCahill was having a "stressful" day herself. I cannot blame her for her mistake after all she is only human and we ALL make mistakes. However, I would really like to suggest that she follow up with her patients instead of just dismissing them.
