Dr. Steven A Weisblatt has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I began seeing this man when I attended college in the area, which was my first time being away from home. I had a lot of new stressors to deal with and fell into depression. I wasn't coping correctly so I looked into professional help which led me to Dr. Weisblatt. He continuously forced the bipolar diagnosis down my throat and loaded me up on anticonvulsants. I gained weight (20 lbs) and turned into a zombie. When I would voice my concerns of gaining weight he would blame me for having poor eating habits, I was vegan!!! When I began my seroquel therapy I was instructed to take 1 tablet PO QHS. The next morning after my very first dose, I woke up to everything in slow motion, females sounded like men, and I was petrified. I called him seeking advice as to why this was happening and his response was I quote, "Cut the pill in half, DUH!!!!" and hung up on me! I was so startled by the response, I began to fear him. He would call up my family members and blame them for my diagnosis when I would be in therapy with him. He is an insecure quack and uses the scare tactic very well. He should be stripped his psychiatric privileges because he has the capability of making the mentally ill suffer through his demeaning approach. The last time I ever met with him his dog came into the room and began to lick herself (as dogs do). He started screaming at her saying "stop licking yourself you stupid s!ut!!" That was the ending for me. After him, I was put on a low dose SSRI, saw a therapist monthly, my stressors were gone, and I became happy. I regret having to ever met this man, he is one of the worst people that has ever existed.
