Specialties

Dr. Darel A Butler 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.

THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS...

Dr. Butler starting treating me in my 9th week of pregnancy 15 years ago (in Memphis). I fell off of a step (diagnosis: ruptured disc - L4-L5) and was on bedrest for my entire pregnancy. So how do you treat a first trimester, pregnant women? With many limitations, Dr. Butler worked with my OB/GYN to find the best solution for me. He created a therapy plan for my entire pregnancy that was doable for me but more importantly very safe for my unborn son! He was on standby to assist, if needed, while I was giving birth. Outside of being a high school classmate, I learned to trust Dr. Butler with all of my neurological issues. I wish that he was still in the Memphis area because now I am having migraines and I can't find a Neurologist that compares or even comes close to the care that Dr. Butler gives his patients! I guess I will have to travel to Knoxville to be treated by the best! Dr. Butler, my family (the Showers) miss you very much! My recommendation for anyone looking for a GREAT Neurologist...Dr. Butler is the one!!!!
