Specialties

Dr. Dwight L Bearden 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.

After reading some of the rude comments I really had to come back express myself more. I have been seeing him for 4 years and I will say he is very polite and tell you what he thinks. Now the staff. I deal with Eureka most of time and today had to deal with Misty and she jumped thru hoops to get me an appointment. Also the wait time is one and usually 5 to 10 mins early. Top notch DR and staff.

Good Psychiatrist

I have seen him for several years. I wasn't sure at first, but he turned out to be a caring person. There were times we did not see eye to eye on my treatment. But he does listen. The office needs improvement on their answering service and returning messages. Receptionist is over worked. But caring people.

Dr. Beardon seemed very knowledgeable. However, I did not feel he shared the knowledge with me. He did write me prescriptions, but did not listen and even dismissed many of my concerns(which were later proved valid). I really wanted a better understanding of my issues and how to address/prevent them, not medication.

Made the appointment for my 17 year old son who was having some emotional issues and had started drinking heavily. Dr. Beardon spent approximately 15 minutes with my son and advised that he didn't think he had emotional issues said he had substance abuse issues and wanted to put him in an out patient program. He said he couldn't do anything for him. We told him we wanted our son to have someone to talk to. He insisted we go to Coliseum Hospital and he would talk to him there tomorrow. He said he could pull strings and have him put in. We went over there and told that they could do nothing because our son was 17. We were basically told to come back when he's 18 and we were pretty much put out on the street. My impression of Dr. Beardon was that of a uncaring person that was wanting to try and get as much out of our insurance as possible by billing as outpatient therapy. We will never seek help through "professionals". This industry is a JOKE!!!!!
