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.

Dr. Edger is the finest doctor I've ever known, of any specialty. Not only is he kind and attentive, but he is a fine practitioner who understands brain and body science as it pertains to mental illness. He is always participating in research presentations to keep abreast of developments and best practices in his field.
Do yourself a favor and think twice about seeing this physician. He doesn't "deal" with the insurance companies so you need to submit the bill yourself. Okay, no big deal. However, he sent me a bill that wasn't filled out correctly. When I called to get the correct information, he was rude and claiming HIPAA was the reason he couldn't provide me the information, which isn't correct since I was the patient and I was requesting the information. Additionally, the insurance company called him was going to conference me into the conversation to satisfy the HIPAA requirements and he refused to participate. Don't go to this doctor if you want intend to bill your insurance.
