Dr. Olga A Katz 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.

Only interested in her patients as a way of making. Her style is to give pills and then rush you out of her office. Totally lacks empathy! Expect a wait of one to two hours in her office because she is too lazy and inconsiderate to arrive on time.
I have been seeing this doctor for many years. I find that her bedside manner takes a little getting used to. You have to ask questions and be involved in you own care don't expect her to have all the answers. She's very responsive to curiosity about your condition. The only major fault of the office is that 9 times out 0f 10 you will be waiting for a least 30 min or longer whether you are early, on-time, or late. This is NOT an office that is always on-time with appointments and getting called in to see the doctor. You have to be willing to wait.
I am an actual patient of this practice, not a wannabe patient who was not accepted or was released due to drug seeking behavior. You have to realize that majority of nasty reviewers did not get what they wanted: drugs or papers to collect disability. I get treated with respect by all staff, who always accommodate me. Due to my other medical issues I need to change appointments a lot and they work with me and fit me in at the very last notice. Email system works very well for me and Dr. Katz does respond to her emails the same day! Expect a very detailed screening when you first call for an appointment, remember you want to be in a safe place and not be in the waiting room with angry, agitated people. My depression and anxiety are under control now and I see Dr. Katz every other month for my medications. I am very grateful to the doctor for helping me out when I was in that dark place.
