Dr. Robert E Mitchell Jr 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'm lucky to be alive. Dr. Mitchell prescribed me 180 mg of adderall a day for 9 years. Then abruptly decreased me to (what I now know) fda limit of 60mg a day. He didn't advise me side effects of withdrawal. Nor did he tell me suicidal thoughts and tendencies were a potential side effect from adderall withdrawal. Needless to say I'm lucky to be alive.
I had him as a psychiatrist 8 years ago. When I first went to speak with him, I was really nervous and so began to rattle off my experiences with what I assumed was a mental illness. He never acknowledged anything I said and kept typing at his computer. Then he proceeded to interrupt me by saying, "I know what you have. You haven't shut up the whole time you were here." I was appalled, and even more so when he misdiagnosed me with ADHD without regard to the content of my talks with him and proceeded to prescribe me a multitude of unnecessary medications. Whenever I met with him, we barely talked before he gave me a script. Whenever I needed to speak with him, he blew me off. Once I came in after being blown off and waited for an hour to meet him. When at last he came out of his office and behind the front desk and the receptionist told him that I was still waiting, he said loud enough for me to hear, "She can wait." I was so angry that I confronted him behind the desk and told him how terrible of a doctor he was and that he hadn't helped me at all. I said I no longer wanted to be his patient and he said he didn't want me to be his patient, and I said that was fine. I have since found a doctor that has diagnosed me properly 8 years after I decided to seek help from this inept a**hole, and have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I strongly recommend not seeing this psychiatrist. You will come out worse than you had started.
