    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.

  • Psychiatry

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

Arrogant Ahsan

If you care about your child, don't bring them to see this callous, arrogant man; he doesn't care, he just wants you out of his office. His angry "blame the patient" attitude actually hurt my child. He wildly swung from decency to insulting, from selective mutism to schizophrenia. He insulted my kid, who was desperate for his help, and then refused to treat her. My child was treated like crap and refused treatment. She has aspergers. He said "Look at her...in her own little world!" in such a mocking way. I wouldn't take a depressed goldfish to him. As a result of his refusal to help my child, we lost our home. YES, I'm serious.

One Star

Absolutely horrible at scheduling appointments at reasonable intervals. Will let patients on new medication go for months before seeing them again, and it is impossible to schedule appointments for concerning situations. Follows "checklist" of medications and pays little attention to individuals. Arrogant bedside manner.
