Dr. Zvjezdan Nuhic 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.

I have experienced Dr. Nuhic over time to: grossly and intentionally violate his own freely offered word, and to even run away and lock himself in his office to evade discussion of the consequence of his dishonesty. This person is no man by even a longshot. And when a psychotherapist behaves in this way, I can only conclude that such a "therapist" is incompetent in the EXTREME.
I have seen Dr Nuhic for about one year. I was not sure what to expect but after my first visit I was sure the decision to get help was right. I was treated with respect form the people in his office and always keep up to date with Insurance and forms to sign. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dr Nuhic has changed my life in a positive way. I am sure what he does is part of being a Psychiatrist but I know that he made me feel I could and would get well. Lindy Robbins,LCSW and Dr Nihic have done more to help me then I could hope for. It is difficult to think what I might have been like without the help I received.
