- Addiction Psychiatry
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.
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

I have seen many psychiatrist. Some don't know anything about the medication they prescribe other than the names. Others call everyone a bipolar disorder.Dr Chin is the first, and since, the only doctor I know whom can explain to me the difference between a bipolar, schizophrenia, post traumatic stress, and others. He knows everything about all the medications and how they work.I have never met another psychiatrist with his kind of indepht knowledge since. Dr Chin, if you are reading this, I want you to know that yes, you did make a difference in my life.
There are doctors who are just going thru the motion, treats their patients as just a chart, and accepts everything documented about you like its the absolute truth. They never give things a second look, or try to have an independent mind.I was misdiagnosed as a Schizophrenic by so many doctors that you would think that schizophrenia is as common as a common cold. None of those doctors ever took the time to examine my case. They just accept what someone once wrote about me as the final fact.Well, Dr Chin is different. He re-examines every patient as if they were a new patient every time. Nothing was ever taken as granted. As such, he gave me my real diagnosis, and explained why all those other medication I have been prescribed never worked. They just sedate me.If you want a psychiatrist who is updated on the most current science of the brain, and who do not just practice cook-book medicine, which they call it 'treatment guidleines' or 'standard of care' nowadays, then Dr. Chin is one of the few among many who is knowledgeable and independent. He may not always tells you what you like to hear, but he tells the truth.
Dr Tin S Chin is the smartest psychiatrist I have ever met. He has the most updated knowledge about the most current concepts of neuroscience in the field of psychiatry. When it comes to understanding mental diseases, he not only gives the list of symptoms, something that anyone can find in googles, but he gives an indept explaination of this course of this disease, what is the etiology, and how will the patient suffering from this disease develope over time. When comes to treatment, he not just have a list of FDA approved medication on his list and know their side effects, something that anyone can discover throught google, but he can give an indept explaination of how this medication works in the brain and how combining different medications would give a more robust effect that one would otherwise expect from it. He is a brilliant clinician, a intellect, and a first class expertise.
