Dr. Keith R Edwards 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.

Dr. Edwards will NOT be there for you when you need him most. You cannot count on him for follow up assistance.
Dr Edwards listens to your symptoms carefully and has a good bedside manner. I have idiopathic neurological symptoms with no diagnosis still but I understand that neurology is not a concrete specialty. I went to a horrible orthopedist who didn't tell me that I was describing neurological pain, the PT that I was seeing told me. I also saw a rude/unhelpful rheumatologist who asked me why I was bothering him. So compared to these other specialists Dr Edwards is 1000 times better. His office staff can be bad about calling you back or getting your prescription faxed to the pharmacy but that pretty much describes all doctors offices in my opinion.
Please be advised that Dr. Edwards will give up on your loved one. He will not be there for the caregiver when needed. He's easily influenced by transferred medical records and will not take the time to make his own assessment. However, he is very good at billing your insurance company for quick appointments!
My daughter could NOT get in to see Dr. Edwards so she saw Dr. Rosentahl (his partner?) and this woman was AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. She doesn't know how to deal with patients. She's cold and uncaring and she will drop you if she doesn't like being told that what she's doing isn't helping. I've heard good things about Dr. Edwards but we have, tried and have not been able to get in to see him. Dr. Rosenthal saw my daughter today about a serious problem she's dealing with and basically told her that since her Botox failed she wasn't going to be seeing her anymore. Supposedly, Botox treatments for cervical dystonia take more than one single treatment work but this horrible person just said there was nothing more she could do for my daughter and walked out. She is not only a terrible doctor, she's not much of a person. DO NOT GO TO THIS WOMAN...ALL SHE HAS IS HUBRIS.
