ok, i need help understanding difference between neurologist, psychiatric neurologist, psychiatrist neurologist, etc. i had a licensed psychiatric test difficult child last year and report says "neuropsychological", however, right now i wouldn't give a dime for the report.


A neurologist is a medical doctor who specializes in diseases and disorders of the brain and central nervous system (for example, epilepsy and migraines).

A neuropsychologist is a clinical psychologist (non-medical doctor) with extra training in how the brain functions. A neuropsychologist does extensive testing on cognitive and psychological functioning.

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who treats patients with mental health issues (anxiety, depression, mood disorder, etc).

Did I answer all your questions?
