Dr. Reginald M Biggs 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 had a lot of difficulty finding a psychiatrist in PG County. Dr. Biggs was one of few who is actually accepting new patients. I left msg at 2 other offices and didn't get a call back. Dr. Biggs office was not crowded but I only saw him for the initial visit (he told me that he and his staff recently changed the schedule so that only new patients are seen on Friday.) I explained that I wasn't just interested in medication and he told me that he has therapist that work in an office next door. He told me that he feels that talk therapy is usually an important part of treatment (which kinda surprised me-- he doesn't seem to just push pills lol). For my mild depression, he took time to explain how the medications work and he seemed genuinely concerned about me and my illness. I have a friend who sees him and she said that out of the 4 psychiatrist she's had in the past, Dr. Biggs seemed to be the most caring. His office was big enough for me (he has about 5 chairs in his interview room... I guess incase you have a family, but it might be a little small if you have that many ppl with you in his actual interview office.. the waiting room looks like it fits about 20 ppl and the front desk lady was nice enough to ask me if I wanted to watch something other than the news (they were playing Fox5 and the news is sometimes depressing for me so I asked her for the lifetime channel and I was surprised that she turned the TV lol-- it might have been because there were only a couple of ppl in the office). The office is a bit drab (no pictures and color is a light gray), but I honestly didn't go for the decor. Dr. Biggs has a pleasant and engaging smile which helps you forget that the decor is so boring. Well, that's my 2 cents lol
Waited over an hour past appt. Packed tiny, warm waiting room with many many other people well past their appt time. Heard a woman behind the window, turns out to be the doctors wife to be a complete rude and disrespectful to the receptionist and everyone that walked up to the window. The wife just barked at everyone like a dog. Treated them like dirt. Meanwhile once you get into Dr. BIggs office, total joke. Uncomfortable tiny office. Not welcoming. Guy didn't know his medicine or anything else for that matter.
