Specialties

Dr. Arturo J Otero 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.

He's the best!

Dr. Otero is the best doctor I have ever had. Not only did he treat my case with urgency in regards to scheduling tests and follow-ups, but he also took the time to thoroughly explain my diagnosis and my options, and he made several phone calls to check on me and answer any and all questions I had (and I had a lot). His bedside manner is fantastic; he took the time to get to know not only me, but also my family, and he remembered details about me that I had mentioned in passing. I definitely recommend Dr. Otero for anyone looking for a great neurologist. I am moving to a different city soon, and I will miss having him as my doctor.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Otero during my training as an EEG tech in 1981, at the UAB Medical Center. As a Student Instructor in Neurophysiology, he was kind, helpful, and entertaining. Dr. Otero always made time for the students and was available to answer our multitude of questions. I'm sure he's as kind in private practice as he was as a resident.
