Dr. Richard A Lewis 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.

This heartless doctor looked at my son, and said he needs to see a psych doctor, my son had Autoimmune encephalitis, his immune system instead of protecting him was attacking his body. He could not speak, he had declined cognitively, my happy all A student could not remember his own last name! Dr. Lewis said that, the mother is in denial and he has Schizophrenia! and he needs psych meds! What was interesting is that he was very persistent! We wasted time by going to UCLA psych department, after a couple months of trying psych meds and watching my son go downhill, UCLA psych department said, his condition is physical not mental, that Dr. Lewis did not diagnose him properly. I will never forget how dr. Lewis yelled at my son "Why don't you speak? Dr. Lewis my son could not speak do to brain inflammation! Stay away from this doctor!
