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.

This place is atrocious. Filthy waiting areas, incompetent/rude staff, and most importantly, awful patient care. Dr. Williams (who is actually just a nurse with a second-rate nursing doctorate) sits in her chair, feet up on the table facing you, and reads questions from a script. When it comes to diagnosing patients, she then inevitably pulls out what may just be a "Nursing for Dummies" book, and tells you what it says. Sorry lady, but anyone can just read a book to patients and you definitely shouldn't need to refer to one for simple diagnoses/prescriptions. To top of it, they mis-scheduled my appointment, and sent a nasty letter that day that I would be charged an exorbitant penalty for their mistake. Of course, I won't be paying it and won't be going back. Seriously, stay far far away from this shady operation - I work in healthcare administration and this place and its providers are truly "bottom of the barrel."
I made an appt. with Handrup, and had to cancel. I gave over a months notice. I called to reschedule and was berated and "scolded" for cancelling, but set up a new appt. 3days before the appt., the office called to cancel on me. We rescheduled, then 3 days before my next appt., they called again to cancel. What jerks, Im not playing there game anymore and will have my Dr., (who recommended him) not recommend him to anyone else, and I will certainly not speak a good word about him. What an absolute Je@k
I am a new patient of Handrup & Associates and they cancelled my appointment at the very last minute stating that Dr. Marks had an emergency. Since I needed to see a doctor urgently, I called back to try to schedule an appointment with a different person and Dr. Marks assistant Bill was not helpful at all, he was rude, and raised his voice at me. If that is how they treat new patients, what kind of service can you expect from them later on?PS: Also, the person that scheduled my appointment had already warned me that Dr. Marks is always running two hours late.
