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.
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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Vivek Agnihotri - Posted on August 13th, 2018
Dr. Agnihotri is compassionate, caring, and a great listener. Every appointment he takes the time to answer any questions I have related to my illness/treatment, discuss potential alternatives as well as adjunct therapies, and listen to my concerns/thoughts related to current therapy. He helped improve my life in ways that cannot be quantified. I highly recommend him and there is no price too high for me to continue seeking his help.

Dr. Agnihotri is invested in your health. He shows concern for your entire well being and is motivated to help you find the right solutions. Although he does not accept insurance, his care has been invaluable and well worth paying out of pocket. (His office will print out a superbill for you if you want to submit it yourself for reimbursement.) This takes the focus off of bureaucracy and puts it back onto patient care. I have been impressed by his willingness to come up with a plan that I am comfortable with. Many doctors will simply tell you what to do and expect you to comply with no discussion. I would recommend Dr. Agnihotri to anyone struggling with anxiety, adult ADHD/ADD or addiction.
