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 will never recommend "Dr" Mebreatu. i went into the office scared about a new development with my chronic illness and looking for help. he immediately cut me off any time i tried to say anything. he was rude. he said he didnt deal with my illness even though i scheduled with him because i was told by staff that he did. his bedside manner left MUCH to be desired. the appointment was quickly over and i walked out of the room in tears because i needed help and couldnt afford another dr appointment ..and he in no way was going to even offer advice LET ALONE help. i was still charged
After being referred to a nuero doctor by my Orthopedic doctor. I saw this doctor. He ordered up hundreds of dollars in testing . The office would not allow me to see the doctor for a follow up for over a month. In addition, they had a medical assistant or a nurse give me the results over the phone. When I inquired with this person what my next step was, they offered no help . Instead I was told I had to wait to see the doctor. Still in Pain, after multiple telephones calls and a written letter, I saw the doctor again. The second time I visited, it was clear he was annoyed to see me. I explained that my pain was still acute. He offered little help and stated that there was little else to do. I asked if he could at least call in an anti-inflammatory med. He said he would. When my pharmacy contacted him about my request, he refused. My next step is to report the office and the doctor to the Medical Society or OPD. I am still in pain and received no benefit from South Shore Nuero in Patchogue NY. I will never refer anyone there
