Dr. Mahmut E Gurol 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.

I have recently seen Dr. Gurol because of a brain bleed that I had earlier this year. A google search showed that he gave talks on risk factors and prevention of brain bleeds in international conferences. He sees patients on the eight floor of Wang building at MGH. We came 15 minutes before the appointment and he warmly greeted us right on time. He nicely explained the main purpose of the appointment: making sure that all measures are taken to prevent another bleed. He took a detailed history, performed an exam. He showed us my brain images and explained what I had and why that had happened. He spent about half hour to discuss the things that I need to do and not do in order to prevent any new stroke. He was very professional, extremely thorough and he answered all of our questions. We had many questions about the rehabilitation issues as well as the cause of my stroke, I was very satisfied with his answers. He ordered few tests and asked us to call him once they are completed. He returned our call promptly once these studies were done and explained the meaning of the results. My blood pressure medications were adjusted after my appointment with him and my blood pressures going much better now. He is a very reliable and personable doctor. I look forward to going back for my follow up appointment.
