Dr. Warren H Scott 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.

My very first visit - a very comprehensive visit, Dr. Scott would ask me questions, then cut me off before I was through answering. He never maintained eye contact, but stared at the top of his desk during most of the visit. I was having a difficult time understanding what he was saying to me. If he would have at least turned his face so that he was speaking toward me, rather than the top of his desk, it wouldn't have been such a problem. I have had a problem with insomnia that I've battled for approximately 14 years that is apparently anxiety related. During the past few years, this has worsened due to many major life changes/stressors. Dr. Scott refuses to treat my insomnia, which is affecting my health and quality of life, as well as my psychological issues. I have been treated by other psychiatrists and a PCP that prescribed Ambien and I have never had an issue with it. I was told by his nurse-practitioner that, when he does prescribe Ambien, women get 5 mg and men get 10 mg. This makes no sense. Drugs are prescribed by patient sensitivity and size, not sex. I have always had to take 10 mg. I am on disability now due to anxiety/depression and have Medicare. His psychiatric group is the only one where I live that accepts Medicare. I feel as if this issue is forcing me to accept substandard mental health care.
