Dr. Scott C Forrer has the following 2 specialties
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 went to Dr. Forrer for an ER follow-up and tests for MS. He didn't discuss MS with me at all, did not seem concerned about the neurological decline I've been having, and would not listen when I explained that I would need a different type of test because of an underlying genetic condition. He also refused to turn down the level of electricity on the EMG test, even though I asked several times and was crying from the pain. He wasn't necessarily rude, and he did take the time to let me talk, but he didn't take my concerns seriously. He reduced them to migraines and carpal tunnel. And I am disappointed that he did not try to dig a little deeper, especially for someone with a rare disease that came from the ER.
I hate to agree with other people but this is the worst doctor I have ever been to. He never talked to me about what I felt, appointments were barely 3 minutes long even when I tried to ask questions he would tell me all was ok. He diagnosed me based on an MRI taken over 5 years ago and I asked to have a new one done and he said the order would be forwarded to the Radiology lab. It never was, he is quick to dispense medication and forget if you need a refill, he makes you go in to get a follow up to give you a written prescription. Can never get in on an emergency and once he walked into the office and let out a loud burp. Very unprofessional.
Fortunately, I only had 1 visit with him (sorry, I am not into empty titles). He was by far one of the worst doctors I have ever experienced. He was rude and insulting. He supposedly had no information about me yet made alot of invalid assumptions about my health based on NOTHING. I take my Mom with me on any of my medical visits now. She dared to ask him a question and he yelled at her. This man is a black mark on medicine.
Dr. Forrer took very little concern with a serious head injury I had. He insulted me by insinuating some of my symptoms and SERIOUS problems were "psychological", and therefore he did not offer me the help I was so desperate for. I found this doctor to be extremely uncaring, rude and it is insane that he is actually practicing medicine in this state. He literally said I "seemed good" without asking me ONE question about how I'd been doing in the last month since I'd seen him. I didn't know you could accurately assess & diagnose a brain injury just by looking at someone. Dr. Forrer gave me the worst medical care of my life.
