Dr. Melissa H Kannaday 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.

In my opinion, I feel extremely comfortable while taking with Dr. Kannanday. She makes good eye contact, and is easy to talk to, because she LISTENS. I feel Melissa helps a person develop through there problems at there own pace. And the advantage to this approach is; that while you talk about your problems out loud with someone who is genuinely interested, and unpack your thoughts. You often come to realize what it is in your life that is causing your psychosis. Along with her experience to facilitate your walk towards well being, she is above all, a good listener. And that might be the most important part of your visit. Aside from her medically, and scholarly sound point of view. She comes across as just another human with problems just like us all. No better off, or worse off. On a unrelated note, her smile is infectious.
