Dr. Germaine B Hawkins has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I really enjoyed my first visit with Dr. Hawkins. We had a plan in action and as a cash paying patient I wasn't able to come back right away but when I did come back I have seen nurse practitioners who have not had my file or or known any of the game plan that me and him originally talked about. I've requested to see him repeatedly cause every month when I go I'm still seeing NP who never have my file( this month it was two consecutive weeks )& it's like I'm going in for the first time all over again not getting any prognosis nor results. I've been seeing psychiatrist for the past 24 years but my last doctor is retired and I released my medical records yet my last visit I was being offered medications that I've already had to trial and error with 15 years ago. My medications that I've been on for years and finally had found A balance to where I can have a normal quality-of-life is listed through my MHMR records but for some reason I cannot get these medications here. I pay out-of-pocket because I want a more personal experience than MHMR gives now that my doctor is no longer there but I am not finding it here. Started out looking like a dream come true but I feel like a number in a heard of cattle. I like to feel comfortable and trust that my best interests is being looked out for not someone's opinion when they haven't even open my file. So the search for that special doctor who has time to see me is still under way.
I saw Hawkins on the first visit; shook his hand and from there on in my meetings were with his P.A., who kept me waiting 1 1/2 hours on my last appointment. During that appointment, apparently she became spooked at the number of medications I take: for MS, Fibromyalgia, and Major Depressive Disorder. Even though I've been on these medications for years (and have been under her care for about a year) she told me I "was over medicated" and proceeded to slash all my meds in half or discontinued them. One month later, on the day of my next appointment, I received a call from the receptionist saying, "Don't bother coming in, you've been discharged from our services..." WHAT. That's it! No explanation! UNBELIEVABLE! If you value your time - don't waste it here!
I went in as a new patient today and was expected to see a nurse practioner for my first visit, the ladies at the desk never told me when they made the appointment that I would not be seeing the the Doctor and that he wasn't even in the office that day! I was very reluctant to have anyone but the Doctor see me and will not be going back to this clinic!
