Dr. Darla J Hinshaw 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.

Three Stars

First time I went to see Dr Hinshaw with my daughter, she was very unorganized. She had not had any paperwork that I had to initially complete at a separate appointment. When I asked if she had received it, she left her office to go find it. Then as she asked us questions, she tried to skim the detailed paperwork. Disappointing that it was clear to me she did not read it beforehand. She wasted our time. On a positive note, she was very kind to my daughter and I believe started her on the right medication. Last, we were 10 min late for a follow up appointment. We live 1.5 hrs away and hit construction. She absolutely refused to see us. I offered to reschedule for a different time that day, and was given a completely different date to return. I was appalled! Terrible customer service from the Dr and the office staff. I have since found my daughter a new Dr. The new Dr doesn't even agree with the diagnosis Dr Hinshaw gave my daughter. I am glad we found a different place to go. They have done things right.

Doctor didn't seem to have time for my concerns. Was talking on the phone about another client. (What happend to confidentiality?) During our supposed time. I had concerns that took days getting back and both times, never doctor only nurse. Per hinshaws supposed suggestion, taking my son to a doctor and having that doctor say he was having side effects...Hinshaw insisted it was not medication side effects but something else. A complete inexcuse of a doctor!!!

Frustrating Experience

After my son's visit, Dr. Hinshaw refused to discuss medication changes with me. She was supposed to call me twice and did not call me. Very confrontational when I finally spoke with her during a treatment review meeting. Did not take the time to learn about my son's previous medication experiences before trying to make new ones. Do not feel she has taken the appropriate time to truly know my son's challenges. Extremely rude and condescending.
