Dr. Subir Prasad 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 have seen him a few times over the past few years and I still do Not have a diagnosis for my condition. My pain brings me to tears and has worsened over the time he has been my so called doctor. I have begun doing things I have no memory of doing and I attempted to discuss my memory loss with him. I was informing him of some things that have happened, physically, since my last visit with him and I brought up the memory problem. His response "sounds like you have a very good memory to me". This was due to informing him of the numerous problems I am experiencing. He then said he was going to tell me 3 words and later have me repeat them. I didn't remember he never asked me to repeat them until I was checking out to leave. I could only remember 2 of them at that time, I don't remember any of them now, but in any case he never asked me to repeat the words to him. He was very rude, showed no interest in my medical conditions and never helped me in any way. My suffering has increased to where I have days I am in tears but I choose to suffer over wasting my time and money to visit this arrogant, pompous, useless, JackA**!
He spent MAYBE 5 minutes with me total, was dismissive, disinterested, he ignored my issues and didn't give me time to convey. Needed to know if I was married or not. Won't be back.
