- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
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.

This doctor refused to see me after I had made a 110-mile round trip drive because I was 15 minutes late to the appointment. I tried to explain that I was late because I got caught behind a wreck on the interstate between my home and his office. When I arrived, at 11:45 a.m., there were no patients in his waiting room and the receptionist began processing me. All of a sudden, another person appears from the rear and saod I must reschedule my appointment because I was late. I can't tell you how many hours I have waited in waiting rooms for other doctors, and this guy can't be bothered by waiting 15 minutes for me after I had driven 55 miles one-way for the appointment. It was the height of rudeness and arrogance on his part. Doctors think they are gods. They are not. I will find another closer to home and maybe has a little more empathy with their patients.
When calling the office, they are slow to call back (did not call for a week, had to go by the office). They fail to follow through on making referrals. Part time nurse seems to do as she pleases with no management and she tells patient to make their own appointment for referrals. Dr. does not follow through with what he says he will do on contacting patient's medical team.
Does not seem to care about finding an accurate diagnosis. Makes patient return over and over again with no results. Slow on returning phone calls and giving test results. Does not do the proper test for the symptoms. Patient could very well be dead before diagnosis. I see a major law suit in the future.
