Dr. Peter A Lewitt 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.

Doctor LeWitt listened and explained things in a way that eased my anxiety. He let me tape the session so I could go back and listen again.
Waited several months to see this specialist. Have sudden hearing loss, tremors, memory loss, & now glaucoma, all at age 40. My mom died from a rare autoimmune disease I have a 50% chance of inheriting. He told me my glaucoma was caused by Lasik surgery last year & my hearing loss by sleep apnea! Never mind my genetic predisposition to an autoimmune disease. He ordered zero tests & just wanted to know what other drs had told me might be wrong. Prescribed me Klonopin, 2 hr wait after scheduled appt., waste of time. Told me to come back in 6 months to give him results of tests other drs have ordered. So why bother going back to him at all? He somewhat treated one SYMPTOM of what is wrong with me, he did not bother to try to DIAGNOSE my issues. Just to let him know what other drs come up with. He should have ordered tests himself or referred me to a dr who is more of an expert, not spin me off with Klonopin. 2 hour wait time was completely unacceptable. Bedside manner very uncomfortable. No level of trust in this dr because he honestly did barely anything, did not explain too much, seemed rushed.
We waited over 2 hours with out seeing the Dr. The girls took down all our info and did all his work for him, so you'd think that would speed up the wait time. We were so tired after driving an hour and then waiting 2+ hours we decided to go home. There is a definite need to extend the time between appointments so that people aren't waiting so long. The people that come to Dr Lewitt are usually very ill and tire easily and he should be able to shorten the time. The girls called to apologize but you'd think the Dr. would call. This is not the first time this has happened, it is everytime. One time he never said goodby and we waited 30 minutes for him to return! Good Dr. if you don't mind waiting!
Extremely compassionate and very patient! Extremely informative! Amazingly connected and engaged in the thoughts and experiences of the patient(me)from the physical perspective (symptoms) but also the emotional side of existing with a disorder in everyday life. What was so refreshing was in a very short meeting he was completely able to empathize with the emotional perspective that I was feeling. He came to his conclusions medically but didn't forget about the other important stuff for a patient...being human! He knows his stuff inside and out. He hears and absorbs what you are saying. He is open, fair, professional and clear! He cares!!!!
