Dr. Robert Vincent has the following 3 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.
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

Dr Vincent was my dr for almost 20 years , one day i went to my appt the door was spackled shut and he was gone ..no goodbye , he left so many patients that had no clue what to do where to go and how to get help...he literally was there and gone...altho he made it known he was very unhappy with the stony brook system...he oftened complained that the system was broken and he was miserable... had to pull his own charts , very unorganized , his receptionist a short lady with short dark hair made everything difficult ,only one receptionist was kind and compassionate , it was easily always running an hour to 2 hours late ...he was very kind and thats what made his disappearance even more surprising , he always made copies of the visit and any notes he had taken and when i told office i never received notice of him leaving they sent me a copy of my last visit which said on bottom that he was retiring but my copy that he gave me said nothing so it appears that stony brook wrote that on last note of patients to cover up the reason he just disappeared, he was very friendly with receptionist that left due to back problems and often socialized together which i later found was not appropriate
the most compassionate doctor i have ever knownâ¦he's kind and concerned and truly cares about all his patients , the office staff well no one does anything for him , he pulls charts , he takes his time with each patient and he's an awesome man couldn't ask for a better Dr, anywhereâ¦so sad to see him go...
