Specialties

Dr. Heath R Penland has the following 3 specialties

  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • 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.

Horrible Experience

Dr.Penland is a faker. He pretended to be nice to me at APS and now by himself his true colors were revealed. He had referred me to Dr.Pope because my insurance was out and I got it back in May. He was so awesome in the past I told Dr.Pope I would have to drop her. I saw Dr.Penland who told me to shut up, and get out. I called the nurse the next day and I was told I had been non compliant. I asked what that meant and I was told I would not get to talk to dr.Penland. In the apt I asked too. And now I have no psychiatrist. He put me on drugs and never intended to keep them. I waited two hours no questions and no way to be compliant because he would not tell me. Trust me run as fast as you can. I have reported him to the medical board of doctors.

Dr. Penland is a hottie

Dr. Penland was a great doctor; I'm very sad APS closed down. I do not know if Dr. Penland is still working in the Huntsville area, but I would love to have him as my regular psychiatrist. Dr. Penland spoke to me as an equal and shared his true thoughts on things when I asked. Very agreeable regarding patient/doctor repoire and trust. Always wished I had longer than 15 minutes to share with him and pick his brain. Smart guy. A+
