Dr. Alan H Hines has the following 3 specialties

  • Psychosomatic Medicine
  • 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.

  • 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.

Dr. Alan Hines Is A Liar And The Rest Too

I'm a disabled war veteran. I have seen Dr. Alan Hines, and I use that word Dr.very disparagingly,numerous times with no help whatsoever. It is a good ole boys club at building 114 at the Boise V.A. They cover for each others short coming and belligerent acts against veterans and our issues. None of the people there have the veterans best interests and well being at heart. They all go to work to do their 8 hours and collect a paycheck that is all. They treat the veterans as an inconvenience and an interruption to their day. We are the reason theyare there. They lie about veterans and they do not have any integrity or ethics.

I reviewd Dr Hines previously harshly. Once I read his progress notes, I understood his rationale. I was unhappy with it but realize it was the best course of treatment for me.

Accurate Diagnosis

Not up to medical knowledge of mental health, nor is he truthful of Veterans disibilities.

I believe if he wasn't so comfortable in a Federal job, to write distorted and slander statements about mentally disabled Vets, He might do well abusing other handicapped, eldderly, or maybe even trusting souls, looking for hope in a care provider.
