Dr. Thomas C Chelimsky 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 had the same experience as an earlier reviewer. My experience here was horrible and traumatic - a total waste of time and money. He told me right out that he didn't care about me. He doesn't respect the patients or even look at them as human beings. They are nothing to him. This doctor is totally unorganized and is more interested in self-promotion and self-image than patient care. Don't waste your time here because you'll get nothing but frustration.
I have had the hardest time with this office. The staff are very unprofessional. They are sarcastic and insulting. They do not take the time to understand the problem. The doctor NEVER returns calls (Even if the situation is dire). He does not return calls through the answering service when he is on call either. If I were you, I would consider any other Neurologist. This has been the most traumatizing event for my family ever. There are other Neurologist, and I suggest you do further research before allowing yourself the grief of associating with this practice. (I am very sincere) I do not like to bash, or degrade people's characters. But, if I can save someone the grief I had to endure, it is well worth it. Please consider this before you make a big mistake.
