What is a Neuropsychiatrist ?

A Neuropsychiatrist is a mental health professional who is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and practices both Psychiatry and Neurology. Neuropsychiatrists treat neurological conditions and psychiatric illnesses, assess emotional functioning and cognitive abilities, and may use different diagnostic tests, such as neuroimaging.

Contact us if you are looking for a neuropsychiatrist, or neurologist, or both.

How is a Neuropsychiatrist different from a regular psychiatrist?

A neuropsychiatrist practices medication management and psychotherapy just like a regular psychiatrist. However, a Neuropsychiatrist will have a biological approach based on brain structure. For example, in the treatment of depression associated with microvascular disease, a neuropsychiatrist may look at the MRI to ascertain parts of the brain affected causing symptoms. Some neuropsychiatrists do not practice psychotherapy, and generally, most neuropsychiatrists practice supportive psychotherapy rather than CBT and psychoanalytic therapy.

Does a Neuropsychiatrist treat neurological conditions?

A Neuropsychiatrist who is trained in neurology will treat Neurological conditions such as epilepsy, parkinson’s disease, migraines, stroke, multiple chlorosis, myasthenia gravis, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy and many more.

How might the approach of a Neuropsychiatrist be different from a regular neurologist?

The approach of a Neuropsychiatrist may be different from that of a regular neurologist, as the Neuropsychiatrist will pay more attention to psychiatric illnesses associated with neurological conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic fatigue, and pay more attention to treating these symptoms.
