Dr. James L Southwell Jr 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 found Dr. Southwell to be a very honest, open and caring physician. He explained aspects of my condition that I didn't know anything about and was very understanding. He always answered my questions thoughtfully and I felt that he was very thoughtful and eloquent in his responses. I would suggest Dr. Southwell to all of my family and friends.
Dr Southwell is one of the most compassionate caregivers it has been my privilege to see. The thing that struck me so powerfully each time I saw him was the fact that he is willing to spend time to talk to you and listen to you. I never felt rushed, I never felt dismissed or dis-regarded by Dr Southwell. I feel like his grasp of medicine was thorough, and he merged my medical issues with the neurological issues for which I was seeing him seamlessly and appropriately.
My husband has neuropathy in both legs. Dr. Southwell was recommended by a friend and we first started seeing him April 2017. Our first visit with him was excellent. He was very thorough and explained everything very well. He gave us time to ask questions and he answered in a very straight forward manner explaining in detail what was happening. Because we and he did not yet know the cause of the neuropathy he ordered extensive blood work and did and EMG. One of his labs came back abnormal and that helped to discover the underlying disease. Had he not have been so persistent and meticulous I suspect this would not have been discovered in it's early stages. We would highly recommend him and we will continue to see him. The medication that my husband is not on has helped his neuropathy pain immensely and we are grateful to Dr. Southwell for his help.
