Dr. Richard B Dewey Jr 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.

We changed from another neurologist to Dr. Dewey for my father who has Parkinson's. Dad was pretty out of it for months with the treatment being given by his previous doctor. His disease was calling all the shots. 6-8 weeks after the treatment Dr. Dewey recommended, my father began to re-emerge again. He has been enjoying life and functioning well for his age. Dr. Dewey sees ALOT of patients. There aren't many like him, so he does rush the visit with the patient. But he does know his job and closely watches test results, etc. for an accurate diagnosis. Just make sure you have all your inquiries written down before you see him so you get all your questions answered.
