Specialties

Dr. Daniel C Potts 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.

Dr. Potts is the finest doctor I have ever gone to for any reason through the years. Whatever the reason he is not seeing patients it is a true loss to those of us who depended on him. God bless you Dr. Potts. We will miss you.

What happened? Dr Potts leaving . A doctor who cared. He would spend the time and effort to find the reason for your pain. I started seeing him when he just started. You could tell he was new. So funny. He and my son became fiends. I would sit there while they talked about me and finally noticed I was there. I will miss him. I hope he and his family are ok! There will never be another Dr Potts!!

In my opinion Dr. Potts is rated as a tie with the best neurologist in the Southeasten States which operated on my mother in Huntsville, Al. He listens to you, he tells you in words you can understand, very curtious and knows what he's doing.
