Dr. Vernon M Neppe 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.

When I was in high school, it was my dream to graduate some day. It was my expectation that I would someday, possibly, become independent enough to live on my own and get a job as a nighttime janitor. That's what happens with "people like me." I began working with Dr. Neppe in my senior year of high school. After a surprisingly short time (involving a lot of testing rather than educated guesswork!), My extremely complex array of neurological and psychiatric issues was diagnosed and being treated effectively. I realized my dream and graduated from high school. Then, after a year in community college, I was confident enough to go to university. When I graduated, I was able to take a job in my field of interest. I can't hope to express how much this means to me. I was a high school dropout who was expected to fade into the fringes of society and try to get by. Instead, I have friends. I have a real job, in which I interact with. I have a wife and children (never in my wildest dreams was this possible). I have, above all else, one doctor I can thank for that. Thank you, Dr. Neppe.
