Dr. Norman M Burns 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.

I went to dr Burns after a hospital stay for neurological problems. Weak left leg, shocking pain in my ribs, needed a walker to walk, dizzy, double vision. I had MRI's done in the hospital and they were normal. I asked Dr Burns for an EMG and a LP. He said a LP wouldn't show anything and he reluctantly did the EMG which came back normal. He then told me, "I don't know what's wrong with you, go home and wait and see what happens." Are you kidding me?!?. I went to another neurologist and he immediately ordered a LP and asked why this has not already been done. The new neurologist said I had a viral infection that attacked my myelin and that was the reason for my neurological issues. He started me on IV meds and I responded and started seeing improvements within a couple of days. Had I gone home and "waited to see what happened" I would have been in a wheel chair within weeks. That's how fast this thing was progressing. I would never ever recommend Dr Burns to anyone!! Is that how he cares for his patients!!
PLEASE don't see this doctor!!I had a TIA, (lost feeling in one side of my body, couldn't swallow, terrible knock you over head pain, dizziness...) My husband took me straight to the ER...ER doc said it seems like some kind of stroke but every test came back fine, the neurologist said I was probably just sleep deprived because i had a newborn at home. 2 days later I had a stroke that left me unable to walk, etc. Was in the hospital for a MONTH. I laid in bed for 6 hours the morning i had that stroke because DR BURNS made me feel like nothing was wrong with me. My VAD was chiropractic....the adjustment was 48 hours before TIA. 😢😢😢 i place full blame on that neurologist. He completely missed a bleeding artery in my neck that day
