Dr. James A Howard III 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.

Dr. Howard is a professional and compassionate Doctor, which can be a rare combination. I struggle with more than one issue, and he has given my life a quality that I did not believe, at one time, was possible. He truly cares about his patients, and he listens. He had a bedside manner which is unsurpassed. His staff, as well as himself, are professional, caring and accommodating. His ability to remain completely professional, while providing his patients with the trust and understanding so often needed, is truly a gift. I would recommend any of my friends and family to him. My life, and its quality, I attribute to Dr. Howard. He truly cares.
Extremely compassionate and professional

An absolutely wonderful doctor.... I had been seeing the same doctor for over a year. He prescribed a mild medication. I visited with him twice a week, and after a full year I was no closer to living my life to its fullest than the first day I walked into his office. A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Howard. My medication remained the same, but I could tell that he was very different. Within a few months, I was back to doing all the normal activities that most take for granted. One thing I hadn't done in over 15 years was flown on a plane. I had flown many, many times in the past, but that became one of the things I truly felt I might do again. Dr. Howard spent the time with me, listening to my fears (which had nothing to do with "crashing"). The first time I scheduled a vacation with my family which required my flying, he gave me his personal number. He let know that I could call him at any moment, and he would talk me through the process. Most of all, he reminded me that I didn't HAVE to do anything I was not comfortable with. He is my doctor. He is extremely professional, but he makes his patients feel special. I thank my friend for referring me to him. Who I am today is who I have always been. The time, the patience and understanding he gave to me during our sessions are truly priceless. I know I am one of many patients, but that "something extra" that he gives is sadly becoming a rarity in the medical field these days.
