Dr. James A Whitlock Jr 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.

A gentle and most empathetic Doctor

We love Dr Whitlock. He treated me as an Inpatient, 13 years ago for Traumatic Brain Injury and we still follow up every 6 months. He always is patient, kind, and knowledgable. Always makes us feel we are his only patient of the day!

Wonderful neurologist

My wife suffered a super-acute epidural hematoma after a fall down the stairs. After life-saving surgery at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, she was sent to Northeast Rehab Hospital for rehabilitation therapy. Dr. Whitlock oversaw her recovery there, and he was amazing. He spent time with her to understand her situation, took a great interest in her progress, and he helped her daily along the way to her recovery. He was confident that she would recover quickly. Despite his heavy workload, he has allowed her to remain as his patient after her discharge to monitor her progress as an outpatient. I can't recommend him too highly.
