Dr. Peter A Calabresi 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 was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis by Dr Calabrese in 1993 (approx) in Providence, RI. He is the most astute and thorough doctor I have ever seen. I have not seen another specialist for MS treatment since Dr. Calabrese. Many list themselves as MS docs but none seem to have more than a cursory knowlege of the disease. Dr. Clabrese is (in my opinion) a world class physician with an in depth understanding and ability to diagnose, explain the disease to the patient and set up treatment regimines. Dr. Calabrese has the rare combination of knowledge and compassion. There is no other like him.
