Specialties

Dr. Adam D Simmons has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    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.

  • Psychiatry

    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.

One Star

After 2 years of treatment for Parkinson's my mother got the same questions asked at every office visit even though she was declining in health. The recommendations were not appropriate for my mother's advance stage of the disease, in fact Dr. Simmon's never even mentioned dementia. We ultimately switched doctors after 2 years but it was too late, mom passed a month later. We put our faith in in because he established the Center for movement disorders but the care was not tailored to individual, very generic approach. Dr. Simmons is better suited for academia than caring for patients, look elsewhere.

One of the best practitioners I've consulted, and incredibly helpful treatment especially with my migraines. I was very disappointed to learn he's no longer at UConn.
