Dr. Robert S Gould 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.

I have been seeing Dr. Gould for several years. I really like him, like seeing him. It is interesting to read his reviews. It appears that most people love him, but some certainly dont. I have found him to be informal and that allows me to feel more comfortable. I feel relaxed in his office. I also feel safe and well cared for. I have never felt rushed. On a couple of occasions he has scheduled over 30 minutes for an appointment on a my return visit. I remember how he once talked about how emotions and stress levels can affect health. He wasnt trying to make me feel bad. He showed me that taking medicines dont always fix a problem and that sometimes stress can make a problem worse. Dealing with my stress did help my symptoms. I see him as a kind man, a caring doctor. I did refer a friend of mine to him who had migraines and she agreed that he was easy to talk to, spent time listening and helped her.
A patient of Dr Robert S. Gould should remind themselves that he is just a tool they can use.Dr. Robert Samuel Goud is extremely pompous and condescending. He has a "diagnosis" for his patients in the first fifteen minutes of their appointment. Any attempt to clarify his misconceptions are met with interruptions and the constant reminder that you have only forty-five minutes of his time. Dr, Gould's continuous breaking with continuity of a patient's answer, while always repeating the refrain "only 45 minutes here" is frustrating and insulting. In addition, it makes Dr. Robert Gould an inept communicator. The time he spends repeating the time frame of the appointment slot, would be time better spent if he just would stop, listen, and let the patient answer his questions. He also is extremely patronizing and disrespectful. In Dr. Gould's presence you cannot help but realize that he feels he is your superior, no matter what you have accomplished. These displays of condescending superiority make this is a physician who feels he know the patient's body and symptoms better that the person living with them.Dr. Gould does not have empathy, or show concern for patients in pain.
