Dr. W M Dean 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.

IT sounds like the last reviewer was more angry than objective. I feel that Dr. Dean is a good doctor. I really don't agree with his philosophy of psychiatry, but he has been better than the other doctors that I have seen. He is a strong proponent of psychoanalysis which makes his demeanor a little off-putting, but if you understand his practice, you will get a lot more out of him. He seems un-engaged, but that is part of his practice. He has corrected a previous diagnosis for me, by analyzing my answers and now I am a lot better. I would recommend him, for people that want to work with a "clinical" doctor, not a touchy feelgood doctor. Someone wanting to help and to solve, not prolong treatment.
This is the worst psychiatrist I have ever worked with. His demeanor since day one was very uncaring and even uninterested. He initilly prescribed a string of tranqualizers which were completely ineffective. I finally started researching medications and offered a suggestion. Turns out I was correct, and the medication has worked well for several years. My last appointment was the most upsetting therapy experience in my life. Throughout the whole appointment he only wanted to talk about how I was going to pay him. He was unsympathetic and he upset me so much that I started sobbing uncontrollably. He did nothing to try to soothe my pain, he only kept asking about the money he was owed. I cried all the way out of the office. The other staff continued to talk only about my payment arrangements as they took the large check I wrote out to pay my bill. I go to therapy to help me with my problems, not to make my problems worse.
