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.

Dr. El (as he is nicknamed by his patients) is very good at listening to and understanding the patient's concerns and needs. He is not one of these 'take this pill - see you in 3 months' after a cursory examination MDs - he wants the best for those in his care. He will prescribe the appropriate treatment he deems necessary after making a thorough diagnosis. Not only that, he is a snappy dresser! :)
Dr. El is a very kind and caring person. He has always treated me with such respect and has proved that he is nothing but trustworthy. He is patient and always takes the time to listen and understand the issues that I am dealing with. I appreciate the time that he takes and how much he cares about the well being of his patients..
Dr. El-Gabalawy was my doctor for approx 7 years, until I had to switch to a different insurer. After seeing other doctors before without success, he straightened out my meds in short order, was clear about possible side effects to watch for, etc. Was always easily accessible by phone if necessary. Wonderful, warm, gentle manner. I owe my happy health to Dr. El-Gabalawy
