Specialties

Dr. Benny L Barnhart has the following 2 specialties

  • 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

Thinks he is the best. Gives meds without explaining side affects. Use to listen to your problems, but feel he is burnt out on patients.

Exceptional Doc

I have been seeing Dr Barnhart for a number of years and cannot say enough positive things about him. He truly cares for the person he is treating and does his best to fit the best treatment to the individual. He has been a Godsend for me. He also listens which you can't say about all doctors. Those of us who have lived in this area a long time know Dr B as the best psychiatrist in town by a mile...so the only downside is, if you're a new patient it might take you a while to get in to see him. But he's worth the wait.
