    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.

    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.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

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.

Best doctor I've ever had

I've been seeing Dr. Frank for over eight years. I see a number of doctors for various physical conditions, and Dr. Frank is far and away the best of them all. In the many years I've been seeing him, he has always been cheerful, kind, and absolutely focused on me and what my physical symptoms are. I always get the sense that there is nowhere else he'd rather be than at the office with his patients, doing the work he loves. I've called him and emailed him several times after hours and always received a prompt and courteous response, no matter how minor my concerns have been. His care has been exemplary, from my first appointment in 2005 until now. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I'm still chewing on my tomgue

My appointment time was very fast. I found the staff courteous. I was referred by a doctor in NY he specializes in movement disorders. I am not impressed with Dr. Frank at all. Have called him several times and my calls have not been returned. I am looking for a new doctor, as the other night I bit my tongue and it bled for over an hour.
