Specialties

Dr. Eston G Norwood III 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.

My teenage son began seeing him this year and we are very pleased with the care. Dr. Norwood seems to be very concerned about his patients and make it a point to respond to every phone call.

Dr. Norwood entered the room in a combative manner, advised me that I did not use appropriate medical terminology when describing my symptoms and advised me that I have headaches. I have been able to see a much better neurologist who was able to help me with one EEG. I have spoken with others in this area with similar stories. STAY AWAY from this Dr.

Do not use - if you have serious problem GET OUT OF DECATUR ALABAMA

My father was diagnosed by Dr. Norwood with Bell's Palsy. Pain continued, and he finally went to Mayo Clinic in Florida. I was present when the doctors told him he did NOT have Bell's Palsy. I was present when he died from a brain tumor.
