Dr. Paul W Brazis 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.

I have been a patient of Dr.Brazis for 12+years. He is the most attentive, caring & compassionate doctor I have ever encountered. He takes the time to listen to my questions & concerns and answers them in direct, kind & understandable terms. He does all he can to find what is causing the medical issues I am having.
I called to make an appointment w/Dr.Brazis. I had a referral from my ophthalmologist to a neuro-ophthalmologist. I also informed the scheduler I had been to 2 retina specialist and 3 ophthalmologist, and 2 Optometrist regarding my eye sight. They informed me Dr. Brazis would review my information and let them know whether I needed to see him or not. Dr. Brazis replied back and told the scheduler I needed to see one of Mayo's ophthalmologist first. I informed the scheduler that was a waste of my money and time as I had already seen 7 physician in 2 yrs so to me they just wanted to make money by making me see a 4th ophthalmologist.
