  • 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.

I hope Dr. Novey is the only neurologist I will ever have to see. I love his dry wit and sense of humor. He is extremely knowledgeable and I wouldn't trade him for another neurologist. In fact, I'm calling his office today to schedule another appointment

Intelligent, caring physician

Dr. Novey's staff is impressive; I was received promptly, courteously, and in a friendly manner by receptionists, nurse practioner, and Dr. Novey ......and the young man in blue scrubs. I feel confident in Dr. Novey' and in NP Philpot's ability to diagnose and treat me. I had a very positive experience overall and would recommend the good doctor to my friends without hesitation.
