Dr. Georgia A Jones has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I was really disappointed in my visit with Dr. Georgia Jones. I am experiencing high stress level in conjunction with caring for extremely ill husband. Her suggestion was to quit smoking and she prescribed me a depression pill. She also led the responses to her satisfaction. She also made a " poor taste" comment about doctors dropping off their patients on her. I was seeking help in coping skills. I will see to it that neither I nor my husband return there. We originally went because of the convenient location for us. The visit was conducted via computer screen. She was not very personable and barely looked your way. She had the type of personality that did not let you speak your opinion or express your feelings. Very lacking in empathy. You will see if you go there for a real problem and are seeking professional advice.
I find that she is very helpful to me. There was a time. I waited 10 minutes for her and it felt like an hour, but when she saw me. She was kind and understood my situation. She even let me know I wasn't alone by talking about a similiar situation she had. She made me feel so much better. I also had time when my life was going good and I was in and out of there in 10 minutes. It really depends on what is going on in my life. One thing for sure the medicine helps. And I do say that is what really counts. She talks from her heart and she talks to you not at you. I feel like I have a friend when I go there. I guess in my situation if you drive an hour away you better like your doctor. Thank gosh I do.
Dr. Jones is overbooked and takes on too many patients. She refuses to return or accept phone calls from patients even if you have a problem, all you will get is "she does not have time to see you". The receptionist will just tell you to go to the emergency room even though there is no emergency. After getting to the ER they looked at me like well what does she expect us to do, she shouldn't have sent you here. Her receptionist is incompetent & failed to tell me I would have to visit a certain hospital ER that could facilitate mental health. After 2 weeks of trying to contact her with my medication issue I kept deteriorating,as a result of her poor patient care I ended up in the ER 3 times and was in hospital twice now due to my medications. ER even tried to contact her and they said she refuses to even see patients when they call. Needless to say she's fired and now I have new Dr that doesnt just come in, say hello and then push pills. Also should have been a big red flag when her office doesn't have air conditioning and she is always behind schedule. What Dr's office doesn't have a/c nowdays?
Dr Jones is a standout in her field.She has insight and compassion; not to mention she is highly intelligent and perceptive. I am in my 60's, and havemoved around a bit during my career. Since I have seen many Drs during my moving about, I can tell you most assuredly she is tops. There is no female comparison for her in any city I have lived. I have no hesistations with my referral for Dr Jones.
