Specialties

Dr. Diane R Counce 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.

Best doctor ever!

Dr. Counce is by far the best doctor I have ever been to. Everyone in the office works hard. Her nurse, Shonda, is amazing. I know that when I contact her or go in that I will receive the best care. I've been to many doctors in various states, and even though I no longer live in the area I still see her. I've lived in four different states since my first visit. She is worth the 6+ hour drive. At times, I may have to wait, but that is no different than any doctor I've ever been to.

She is a wonderful caring doctor with a very friendly staff

She diagnosed me with having seizures and got me on the right meds that I needed to be on. I have been suffering for years with headaches not knowing it was seizure related. If I need her I can reach her though my Portal. She gets right back to me.

Overbooked appointments

When I first starting going to Dr. Counce 5-6 years ago you could get an appointment and she seemed invested in her patients. Now even if you have an appointment you wait 1-2 hours before you see the physician. When I schedule my follow up, unless it is for a Botox injection I have to emphatically state that I would like my follow up with the physician otherwise my follow up is with the NP which I would not mind but I want continuity of care. During my appointment now Dr. Counce seems rushed and less invested in my migraines and helping me determine why they are continuing.

Dr. Counce

Yes, I had my mom come to see Dr. Counce. I did not like her nurse practitioner and she got another one, who we really liked, but I have been told she has another. We prefer to see Dr. Counce and no one else. You wait time can be long in the office, but she gives everyone attention and does not look and run off as dome doctors do.
