Dr. Shirley J Cirillo 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.

Dr. Cirillo is an excellent Dr. She really listens to my symptoms and determines what is wrong. She diagnosed and treated me for symptoms that I had for over five years and have seen multiple Drs. to try to get them addressed. The treatment was simple and inexpensive but it made my life much better.
I thought Dr. Cirillo was cool. But it only took a couple of appts for me to see that she is arrogant, has poor time management skills, and makes unprofessional and ignorant statements. We got into a conversation about work, and my various employers. I had just left my last one and found one that paid more, then I left this one for multiple reasons but mostly migraines. She began to say that it was unprofessional, and that I should be thankful to have a job, and then began talking to me like I was some welfare junkie, saying that earning your own income feels good. She also mentioned that she only had 2 jobs in her entire life and became extremely judgemental. It's a free country, if a job doesn't fit, I have the skills and the ability to quit. People need to learn to respect one's values and standards wether u agree with it or not, it's a new world full of opportunities, and some of us have divergent personalities n like to explore those opportunities. MDs should give medical advice and not career advice. They shouldn't stereotype their clients either just because they don't want to buy the crap they sell and rather get it at the pharmacy
This doctor is extraordinary. She diagnosed me and is compassionate. She follows up on me and makes sure I am doing what I am instructed to do. She wants to see me recovered. I strongly recommend her than waiting for an appointment with a neurologist based in the hospital and suffer the long wait time and rushed clinic visits.
Liked the atmoshphere of the office, staff was courteous. ONLY thing I personally did not like was that even after her diagnosis,we were not successful with the treatment and needed further assistance. She spoke too quickly, and when I contacted her on the phone she was rude. NOT going back!
