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.

She seemed rushed when she would see me in the hospital or office. Several times she didn't call me back when I had concerns. The only time I could talk to her was in the office (always rushed) or calling her emergency number. I started having seizure episodes, and worse headaches after I fell and hit my head. She said I had complications from the concussion, and that it was a movement disorder. Anytime I had an issue, she told me to go to the Emergency Room, and she told them to admit me for monitoring. She didn't listen to me when I told her that I have a malformation in my skull. My malformation was confirmed by a specialist at Barrow's, and two other neurologists. She said I didn't have it because it wasn't in the reports from the hospital, even though I had the hospital send my images to the specialist at Barrows. I told her I need a special MRI and the Barrows staff told her, but she failed to order it, just referred me there (they won't see me without it). She pushed Botox injections on me, I had one dose. I ended up having a slight reaction to it, and she said it wasn't from the Botox and to take Benedryl. She also told me that she just treats movement disorders with Benedryl. After my last stay in the hospital, I received a letter in the mail terminating me as a patient because we failed to establish rapport.
Called her she call me back try to discuss the situation with her when I told her that she work for me I do not work for her she hung up on me that is the most unprofessional person I have ever seen to hang up on the patient because she did not like what they said she also before that told me if I didn't like to find another doctor she is the most unprofessional person I have ever spoke to
She is a very good Dr. We are very pleased with here
