Dr. Richard D Greenberg 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 guy must be the world's worst psychiatrist. He loaded m dup with about a half a dozen medications which mad sir virtually impossible for m ego get out of bed in th morning, causing m ego lose m y job of 20 years. I was referred to him by my employer and in my opinion, there was believe concerted effort to force me pout of my job of 20 years. Any doctor who would collude with a third party to th detriment of a patient should have his license revoked. Avoid this guy at all costs. In my opinion, he is an unprincipled drug pusher.
I like Dr. Greenberg. I don't think he's amazing, but he's better than most of the other psychiatrists I've been to. Sometimes it seems like he's not taking an interest and there are some awkward moments of silence. At the same time, he's attentive, treats me like a real person, is open to my ideas, and doesn't try to push drugs on me if I say I don't want them.I also wanted to respond to the review saying he was dangerous. I have a feeling that the reason that the person was prescribed so much Prozac is because Dr. Greenberg's handwriting is atrocious, even by doctor's standards. I've had to have pharmacists ask me what my scripts say, so I'm guessing a pharmacist just filled the script wrong and the person didn't notice.
