Dr. Alric D Hawkins has the following 3 specialties
- Psychosomatic Medicine
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.

This individual orders my room locked from 8am-6pm, due to my not attending group meetings-community meetings were repetitious and certain ones I just desired not to attend. I was forced to walk back and forth through the corridor of the mental ward for 10 hours daily. After a few days, I pleaded ot be allowed to rest in my room like the other patients. He screamed, "No, and you're going to start getting shots!" I left the room upset and hurt, saying nothing. There was no reason for me to be treated in this manner. After viewing my medical records, I discovered that he had lied and stated that I agreed to the shots of Invega. Immediately afterwards, I began to have wavy lines in my vision. Regular eye exams would not reveal anything; however, an ERG found retinal damage. The lines have been going on for a few years now; but the proof of damage was just recently discovered. His belligerent behavior and uncaring attitude, is not indicative of the Methodist Hospital System. Something must be done. Note: It appears that one must leave a rating in order to post a review. "1" star represents HIGHLY DISSATIFIED. He's not even worthy of that.
Alric Hawkins is one of the doctors at Methodist Hospital (Downtown) at Psychiatric Unit. My sister was admitted to the hospital at Psychiatric Care. Dr. Hawkins gave Risperidone for my sister to take. We had some questions for Dr. Hawkins about my sister and the medicine Risperidone. But he never met us. So he never directly asked us any questions about my sister's condition. Within next 2 to 3 weeks, my sister's condition grew "far worse" than before. Risperidone made her prolactin level higher than 120. Please do not take this doctor. He will not talk to you or bother to help you at all. How can we depend on a doctor like him who never bothered to properly find out the psychiatric condition of a patient without proper observation and without asking any questions to the patient and people with the patient? My advise is please avoid this doctor at all costs! It will only increase your financial problems and also no recovery to the patient at all.
