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.

He Gave me a wrong diagnosis, never returned my calls, put me on meds that caused me major anxiety, then when I told him he said I needed to go see a crazy Dr. He never retuened my insurance companys paper work for my Botox on the units he requested so they denied the units he initially asked for. He never returned 3 call back to insurance pharmacy department they wanted to get a med put on the preferred list. He is he most incompetent Dr. I've ever seen I do not recommend you to see him unless you want him to through you on Epilepsy meds when you don't really have Epilepsy. He never pulled previous Neurology records. I'm very serious he terrible. He caused serious harm to me. Staff is also terrible, very rude.
First visit, I was very impressed. He was the first doctor to diagnosis me w/ EPILEPSY, (based on 2 abnormal EEG's). He seemed very knowledgeable, & I was super impressed. That's when things went down hill. He stated me on 1 of the newest seizure meds ( which he conveniently had samples of) & scheduled me to come back in a month. Couldn't take new meds, (reaction), couldn't get in touch w/ anyone at office, they REFUSE to answer phones during business hrs., but that's the only time you can leave a msg! Their VM States they will call back w/I 72 hours!! Enfed up in the ER TWICE, & he wouldn't even respond to hospital page or check on me in the hospital!! Finally get follow up apt.& was seen by nurse, followed by some assistant, who then relayed my concerns to Dr. Kabbani , he comes in the room sits down long enough to write a new script ( for ANOTHER NEW med) & walls out of the room!! I tried to stop him to ask questions or at least tell him what was going on, & he told me I should've addressed it with his assistant!!! Biggest complaints: 1) can't get in touch w/ a human at any given time, 2) only writes scripts for the NEWEST MEDS ON THE MARKET, 3) takes more office time to meet with pharmactical reps than he does with his own patients, 3) after first visit, I have seen him 3 more times since and spent less than 7 min. Combined ACTUALLY getting to talk to him about my issues/ concerns. This last visit I was trying to tell him that my PCP changed 1 of my other meds, ( in case it interfered with the new script)- w/o missing a beat, he cuts me off and says " THAT'S NOT MY PROBLEM "!! IF I COULD 'GIVE '0' AS A SCORE, HE DOESN'T DESERVE A SINGLE STAR!!
