Dr. Vitaliy Koss 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 have been a nurse for 35 years, and recently accompanied my daughter for an initial appointment with Dr. Koss for evaluation and treatment of migrane headaches. These troubling type of headaches are often not a stand alone issue, but a symptom of an underlying issue. Dr. Koss took a very non-comprehensive approach to my daughter's headaches. He was very narrow minded, non thorough, and asked us what we wanted him to do about the headaches. We are paying for his expertise, and we went there for his opinion and recommendations, not to draw our own conclusions on the cause. He didn't even know if the med he ordered would interact with my daughter's current meds. My daughter broke down and cried in the bathroom after the visit, and needless to say, we are never going back, and would never recommend anyone to Dr. Koss.
I have been to Dr. Koss's office at least 6 times so far. I went there having at least 1 migraine headache a week with no relief. I now have no major migraines and the ones I start to get I can take care with an abortive medication that I take. I would recommend Dr. Koss and his PA to anyone who needs a great neurological doctor.
