  • Psychiatry

    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.

This site OMITS that Dr. Patel is heavily into ECT-that "Dark Age" medical treatment!...

Dr. Patel is one of docs in charge of the administering of ECT at Lawrence Memorial Hospital...I got like 2 treatments then stopped it-I could NOT remember the names of my 2 animals!!!His comment to me after learning that I decided not to continue was that I should continue with ECT as he claimed it is "preventative!" NO WAY!
