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.

Besides being an incomparably brilliant, world class neurologist, Dr. Relkin has apparently become expert in fields impacted by neurological considerations because his observations and suggestions in related fields have led to far more successful outcomes than going to top specialists. This is so helpful because in crises, it allows the patient to have an overview of his medical situation through one set of expert eyes. Dr. Relkin is an extraodrinarily smart and wise person with what appears to be a highly retentive and inquisitive mind which seeks and is able to find answers in complex situations. His dedication to medicine and to his patients is truly extraordinary. He has made himself available even at those times when nobody else can be reached--such as week-ends, middle of the night, and holidays--- for which our family will always be grateful. Also, it's impossible to accurately describe Dr. Relkin without pointing out how unusually gracious, polite, charming and kind he is---a true, true gentlemen in a field with far too few of them (to put it mildly!)
