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 was diagnosed with PD & originally sent to Dr. Appel. My sister was diagnosed as well a couple years later. She lives in a state wherein local neuro sent her to Dr. Appel's colleague at another hospital in Houston. I joined her thinking there would be an interest in 2 family members diagnosed. I have realized that Dr. Appel spent the time and had compassion where the other team spends a few minutes with medication concern only. In fact, Dr. Appel called me himself once to talk about a concern. The "big guy" called. That was impressive.
Dr. Appel and his staff were absolutely fabulous as my mom bravely battled ALS. Mom was fortunate to be placed under Dr. Appel's care and we, her family, were comforted to know she was being treated by one of the best ALS specialists in the world. Dr. Appel and his staff were always kind, helpful and professional. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for ALS. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of Dr. Appel and his staff, that may not always hold true.
Dr. Appel is OK, although he doesn't have the best bedside manner. A little dismissive of questions. He is in and out of the room about twice in a 9 hour visit. The nurses are great which is the only reason I rated the office staff with a 2. The appointment person, Ella, is so ridiculously rude, that I will probably change doctors. Also my condition has never been officially diagnosed and I don't ever get any post appointment information - i.e. new studies, trials, etc...or any correspondence at all. It is a long way to travel to Dr. Appel for me and frankly not worth the effort when we get nowhere with a diagnosis and when making the appointment tries every thread of my patience. My condition is rare( whatever it is), so Dr. Appel may do very well with illnesses that can be diagnosed.
