Dr. Lisa S Rosof 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 saw Dr. Rosof for years and at the time I trusted her. I complained about sexual dysfunction for years to her and she repeatably pushed it off. I thought something was wrong with me, a healthy, active early 30 something that suffered from some anxiety. Long story short I eventually saw a new doctor and was taken off the SSRI and the SD was gone. I suffered for YEARS because she kept me on the SSRI. I asked repeatedly if there was anything else I could switch to and she provided no other options. After going to another doctor and seeing there were other options besides an SSRI I am no longer confident in Rosof's knowledge of medications. Why didnt she mention adding wellbutrin to help counter SD, why didnt she put me on a none SSRI? These things were so simple, and drastically improved my life. Not once were they mentioned while under her care! When I saw her I trusted her with my life and my marriage. In the end she was an expensive, out of pocket script writer who truly didn't care about my well being. If she cared she would have known the severe distress that came from being completely sexually numb and being in a relationship.
I have been seeing Dr. Rosof for two years now. She does come across a little stern and she asks questions, why do you think that? why did you do that? But in my opinion, she isn't probing, she is merely gauging the situation, your feelings, your being. Her inquiry has helped me. I trust her and I feel stable and comfortable with her. I have had really bad experiences with other doctors that just write out scripts but not her. She will sit and talk with you the entire hour. I trust her. I have never waited for an appointment and she is prompt in following up. I would recommend her.
To me she was inappropriate. I have a hard time with therapists/ psychiatrists, and after a few good experiences and relocating I saw Dr. Rosof. Now I don't want to see anyone. I was there because of side effects, and she questioned me as to why I stayed on the medication (because my previous doctor told me to, DUH) and overall she was judgemental and overbearing in my opinion. She has definitely made me close up again about my problems. Thanks Dr. Rosof -_____-
