  • 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.

    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.

Where is he know?

Dr. Bivins is no longer at The Pain Center. The new doctor there is Dr.Neely and he treated me like I was just a addict looking for meds. He discharged me for something that I know for a fact is not true and I'm am talking to a lawyer. I would like to speak to Dr.Doug Larner about this situtation ASAP.I would love to know where Dr.Bivins is now, he is a wonderful doctor!!
