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.

My wife was admitted to Cape Coral hospital after falling and hitting her head. She spent the first couple of days in the ICU and 15 total days there. Dr. Hillis was named as her Neurologist and he supposedly ordered a cat scan. I ask the nurses to leave him several notes to call me at home, hospital or my cell so I could find out the results of this test and what his opinion was. Over 3 days he refused to contact me and I even tried calling his place of business to no avail. I even stay at the hospital late hoping to "catch" him there. He was supposedly writing in notes and finally signed out on her without ever speaking to me. My wife could not speak or understand anything during this time. My wife has been home for a week now and we still have not heard from him or about this cat scan yet I have a bill for a cat scan. Steer clear of this "God". Ok he is not a God but believes he is. I expect a bill from him any day now. Do you think he will talk to me when I refuse to pay his bill?

Tremendously dedicated to patient care. Takes plenty of time and is sincerely concerned and thorough. Will do whatever he can to sort things out and not at all an egotistical kind of doctor; no hesitation to send for a second opinion. Will not take short cuts in terms of managing disease or symptoms. Very tuned in to patient.
