Dr. Lawrence J Zimmer has the following 2 specialties
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 have never met anyone more obnoxious, egotistical, snarky, self absorbed and just plain sloppy as Dr. Zimmer. He wanted me to try a drug I'd never had before and asked if I wanted to try it. I said I'd rather not and his response was "good bye". Left me a bit confused so I again said the side effects of the drug made me uncomfortable and again he simply said "good bye" and said if I didn't want to take it I could find another psychiatrist. It became obvious to me that he had not read my health history because this drug is contraindicated in patients with my health issues. Additionally, he had me sign a paper stating he had explained the side effects of the drug and only after it was signed did he give me the print out of indications, contraindications and side effects. Most unprofessional person I've ever met in my life.
