Specialties

Dr. David L Pritchard 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.

Oath to Treat

I had an appointment to see Dr. Pritchard. The receptionist asked did you see statement "The NEUROLOGY CLINIC PC DOES NOT TREAT PATIENTS WITH INJURIES OR SYMPTOMS DUE TO A WORK INJURY OR AUTO ACCIDENT?" I said "yes but I am not sure if my pain is from an accident I had last year. I have been hurting since March and only reason I think it may be from an accident is because my PT asked if I had any injury to my neck which I did from accident." Then she asked if I had an attorney? I said "yes but he did not send. I am trying to find out why I am hurting... is it something I did, naturally occurring or from accident." Long story short, after speaking with Dr. Pritchard she informs me he will not see me and I need to see my Primary Care Doctor for a referral to Neurology who handles accident cases. Now that's the problem I have; I did not ask him to participate in my suite, I was simply looking for answers as to why I have hurting since March even after 2 months of PT. I thought doctors took an oath to treat patients. What difference does it make what cause the pain (injury).

Great Doctor... kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable!

I came to Dr. Pritchard on recommendation of a friend of mine who also sees him to manage her headaches. I am so happy I did decide to go see him. He was the first doctor to not make me think I was "crazy" with the symptoms I was experiencing. He listen thoroughly to me and was able to decipher what was going on...finally! Excellent bedside manner and treatment!

A very caring and Knowledable Doctor

I first met Dr. Pritchard when I was in the hospital. He was kind and very patient listening to me go through all of the various symptoms that I had been experiencing. He was able to figure out my diagnosis when I had seen doctors before that couldn't. He also carefully talked me through treatment options. I now see him regularly to mange my condition and am grateful for where I am now. He is always a pleasure to see as you can tell he truly cares. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a kind and knowledgeable Neurologist.
