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.

Dr Collins spends very little time with his patients and simply delegates you to one of their PA's or NP.. These people are not medical doctors and are seeing his patients while he sits in an office talking with other Dr's. If you ask to see him he gets mad and is very rude. Not someone that should be a Dr!!!
It does not take a special doctor to find a medication that works. Most doctors can do that. He does not have any personality. He once said to me, "all medicine works for certain things" after I had told him the medication was not working for me. Thank you for repeating the basic principal of medicine I just explained to you DOCTOR. My problem is he is not a doctor because he wants to help people. You can tell within 2 minutes or less is the doctor cares what you think. He wants to be a doctor so he can work at Duke and make 500k or more a year. Why can't medicine be just about helping people and caring for each and every single patient that walks into your offices? I guess that's a lost art nowadays, caring about your patients.
