Specialties

Dr. Ericka P Simpson has the following 3 specialties

  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • 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 Neurologist

Dr Simpson is a wonderful doctor. It took me about two years to finally find a doctor who had a idea what was going on with me and it was Dr E Simpson. She is kind and listens, great bedside manner. She is worth a little wait to see but they do their best to help you get in quickly. My only complaint would be the office worker who is suppose to keep up with patients on their making sure their needs are met. Sometime it took her over two weeks to have time to get me scheduled for MRIs. Normally it isn't done by her but someone else and they do great. She doesn't call back quickly or if at all. So be your own advocate here. Dr Simpson is well worth It and she is fantastic!

Good doctor, good staff

I have been her patient for years and she has always been prompt in having me scheduled. She is also very responsible in calling with the result of a test that she orders (either she herself or her resident who is as good as she is).
