Dr. Alvaro R Gutierrez has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Sought a second opinion on my wife's condition and, after testing, found that she had been completely misdiagnosed my another pain management 'specialist' in Morgantown. Dr. Gutierrez can be difficult to understand at times, but after 3 years my wife and I have complete confidence in his ability and that of his staff.
Choose someone else!! Wife went there for migraines. She was prescribed a very high dose of SSRI drugs that did not help with the migraines, then something to help with sleep because of the SSRI wouldn't let her sleep. Long story short, she was on medication that did not treat the problem and completely changed her as a person!!!!!!!!!!!!! She became someone I didn't even know at times. So self centered and mean at times. Now that she is off the meds and seeing someone else...migraines are better and she is back to herself. Before any SSRI drug is prescribed to treat migraines there should be a huge warning label!!!!! This can make you become someone that one day you will hate once your off the medication. And you need to inform the patient that coming off the of the meds is absolutely horrible!!! I'm glad to have my wife back and that she is not seeing him anymore. It always seemed like there was a pill/drug for everything without evening thinking about personality side effects.
Dr. Gutierrez and his staff very nice to me and respectful. He seemed to care about getting an accurate diagnosis which in my case was not straightforward. But he and his staff changed as soon as I mentioned applying for disability. He told me in person he could complete the paperwork then when it came down to doing so... completely changed. His staff called me and were very rude with me.. stating "just because you have neuropathy... lots of people have that and they can work!" They then told me he would not even fill out anything because he doesn't consider me disabled. This is NOT his call- that is social security's job . He only has to say what the diagnosis and limitations are, treatments, etc... and they are to decide this. I am looking for another neurologist in the area that will listen to me and care.
