Dr. Tommy Swiney has the following 2 specialties
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.

Not sure if he's human but he's definitely got a god complex, don't expect someone whose never suffered a day in their life to comprehend the word "empathy". Dudes dipping into his own stockpile of drugs too. However, his student psychiatrist was very kind with a wonderful sense of true empathy of other's suffering.
I did not like him at all. I found him rude and argumentative. I switched doctors after approximately four appointments. I must have become one of appointments shortly after he graduated, because his so-called "bedside manner", left much to be desired. Gave zero stars for the last four criteria, as I did not see him long enough, he never followed up and time spent with him was NOT therapeutic.
The staff doing the intake do not make one feel comfortable due to their stumbling over words and southern drawl. The doctor is elitist and biased which is not something a person with mental health issues who is paying a lot of money for services should have to endure. I'm sure the good ratings he receives are from those who fit into his "perfect patient" mold. Don't even try him, unless you enjoy rejection and an unprofessional staff.
I have been to different psychiatrists over the past 15 years, but Dr. Swiney was the only one to adjust my meds to the proper levels. He also gave me a lot of great feedback and instruction on handling my situation. Dr. Swiney (and one other doctor) have been the best doctors I have ever known and who actually care.
