Dr. William D Grainger 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 was not impressed with how he handled my case. He seemed uninterested to what I had to say. I tried to tell him about my past with migraines and it didn't seem to matter. I knew I was having a migraine but since I had not had one in a long time he wanted to rule out other things before he gave me anything for a migraine. To me that was just weird. I knew I was having a migraine so why not just prescribe me a migraine medication? I went to ER and of course they took care of me, but hundreds of dollars later. And wouldn't you know it, I had a migraine. Thanks for nothing. He needs to stick to MS because no one there has anything negative to say. If you want to be treated for ANY type of migraine don't come here.
I have been under Dr. Grainger's care for about 19 years. He has helped guide me though all of my difficulties with MS. I completely trust his judgement, he listens to me while we are discussing treatment options, since due to my personal reactions to several different treatments, we keep searching for the best one.
After 11 years of having all the affects of MS and other Doctors putting me thru all the test a number of times, then as soon as the CNS came back saying is was not MS, Dr. Grainger looked me in the eye and said "you do not have polyneuropathy". He then described my condition and what I was feeling, then told me that in 2011 they discovered that band in the CNS does not always show in people with MS 10% to 15% of the people. Had an appoint with my neurologist in Bullhead City, 4 hours away from Dr. Grainger, she did not know this. He was GREAT because he listened with an open mind.
