    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.

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

Time to retire or at least retire from every seeing patients again

This man should never be allowed to interact with patients. He is rude, abusive and has no understanding how to communicate. He clearly hates what he is doing and should be relegated to a basement lab somewhere where he can simply do research that required never seeing patients ever again.

Terrible doctor! Avoid at all cost! Beware!

I went to see this doctor, he was running nearly an hour late. The room I was taken into was not cleaned after the previous patient. He pulled out a bag of safety pins and started poking me with them. There was no explanation give for this "test" or verbal assurance they were sterile. His bedside manner was abysmal. His speaking manner was agitated, aggressive and condescending, especially when asked questions. He spoke of irrelevant therapeutic procedures that were inappropriate for my condition and in communicating with my primary care wrote a note of complete fiction. Beware of this doctor.
