Dr. Charles C Flippen Jr 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.

I finally feel better

Very good doctor. I don't get migraines that much anymore. The medications help but I think the lifestyle changes he recommended make a big difference.

Criminally Negligent Behavior

My first and only real appointment (seeking help with chronic migraines - 24 hour pain) was after a 5 month wait (his earliest appointment). After the appointment I was not able to receive a prescription for an additional 4 weeks (under heavy e-mail and phone pressure)and received no follow up when reporting worsening conditions. The second appointment in which he only referred me to another doctor was also incredibly inconsiderate because he could have told me this on the phone, my wife would not have had to take off work and we would not have had to pay $26 (office co-pay and parking). Also disturbing is that he apologized for the behavior by following the apology with saying that is just how it works in his office and here is a referral if you want to be treated with any respect or empathy or have any hopes of getting any feedback on your condition.Other doctors have heard this story and describe this doctor's patient treatment as criminally negligent.
