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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have personally been a professional in the medical field for many years. I have seen the many changes in the delivery of care. Although I realize and accept that many aspects of medical care must change- the one thing I will not accept is the brisk herding in and out of the exam room. A physician today must strike a balance between time constraints, listening to the pt- really listening, examination of the pt, and diagnosis. And the balance must be in the pt's favor. To do this, in my opinion, a physician must be a solid diagnostician and be caring and empathetic . Dr. O'Donaghue is all of those. In addition, she is down to earth, listens well, and takes the pt's opinion and feelings into account when proposing a treatment or medication. But, this should not be mistaken as anything but the pt being treated with respect. Dr. O'Donaghue has the full ability, knowledge, and skill to take the reigns. I am very confident that Dr. O'Donaghue provides my mother with very high quality care- what great peace of mind that provides!
Her main staff secretary is curt and appears to need to remain "one up" on the patient. I was 10 mins late one time ( due to confusion of appt time) and was reprimanded as though I was a child. The doctor however is wonderful.
