Dr. Mark J Flood 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 been a patient of Dr. Mark Floods for close to 25 years. He is superior in his field not just because of his keen intellect. He is understanding, kind, compassionate, and just generally a great guy! He doesn't rush you out of his office (like most drs.). Dr. Flood gives you his time. Which is something that most physicians lack!! His office staff is wonderful and accommodating (another bonus). If your not happy w/him then you won't be happy with any psychiatrist. I highly recommend him!!!
I will make this short and sweet. Dr. Flood is a unique physician. He's not a pill pusher and is brutally honest. Which is where most doctors fall short. Smart, caring, and sensitive to patients needs. I've had a very hard time finding other doctors that can match his qualities. One visit and you will look no further! Great physician/person all around! Highly recommend him!!!
I worked healthcare my entire career. I like to think I'm an expert on great doctors (a little critical, but trust me I know my stuff). I've known Dr. Flood for over 21 years. He is one of the most caring, kind, compassionate, and funny doctors ever! In my world if you can get me to laugh, that is better than any pill on the market! I'm not an easy patient. I'm defensive and do not connect easily to other people. But he worked his magic! If you have any type of mental disorder this is THE MAN TO SEE! I cannot say enough good things about him. Sadly, I will be moving and will not longer be his patient. I can only hope to find another physician like Dr. Flood!
