Dr. Benn E Smith has the following 4 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Neuromuscular 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.

One Star

Dr. Smith was the worst doctor I've ever met. I saw him on referral from my board certified neurologist for 3+ years of peripheral neuropathy with tests. After a full day work up at Mayo, whose techs had awful testing techniques, Dr Smith determined that the numbness and tingling and pain in both of my feet was "all in my head" and referred me to a psychologist. He dismissed my neurologist's 3 tests as "wrong". What a joke!! I was diagnosed last year with Lyme disease!! I was infected in 1995, I had a classic rash then but never tested. This was about 7 years before I saw Dr. Smith. Lyme disease causes nerve damage, including peripheral neuropathy. DO NOT SEE DR. BENN SMITH! He is a terrible excuse for a doctor, arrogant, self-righteous and does not listen or look at FACTS.
