Dr. John R Absher 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.

My family is concerned about my shuffling gait, clumsiness, and frequent falls. When my friend looked up my medications I found these are all symptoms of side effects of my seizure medication, plus several other issues I deem not be as serious. I moved to a ground floor apartment last year because I was afraid I was going to fall down the stairs of my upper level apartment. Being unsteady on my feet and falling often is very scary and I almost always have healing small scrapes, cuts, and often bruises. I'm not yet 60 and he blamed it on my age and told me to stay off of the internet!
I have read all the reviews for Dr. Absher and cannot believe the negative feedback. People talk about his horrendous bedside manner and talking down to them like they were stupid. What do you want, a comedian for a doctor? Not me. I go to doctors for their knowledge and expertise. Dr. Absher is precise and to the point. In my opinion, Dr. Absher is brilliant and I will continue to go to him as long as he let's me. He's the only doctor that has figured out what's wrong with me. I am currently undergoing IVIG infusions at home and am very optimistic I will one day soon be able to walk again. I'm really tired of this wheelchair. As for his staff, I have found that every one I have dealt with is courteous and kind. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Absher to anyone.
I would not recommend this provider to my worst enemy! I was sent to him for a MS w/u. I have tremors, severe fatigue, leg weakness,and a plethora of other symptoms that all point to MS, since most everything else has been ruled out. He NEVER looked at my brain MRI, he was supposed to do an EMG on my legs but instead did it on my hands. He didn't listen to anything I had to say and his bedside manner was horrendous! So, if you want a dr that doesn't listen and treats you stupid, he's your man! I have been in Healthcare for over 20 yrs and I was appalled he still has a business!
Waited 11/2 hours after appointment time left. Of course told i''m next when decided to leave. Just stick your head in room and explain there is delay would have been nice. Waited over two months for appointment arrived with paper work filled out as ask. Usually don't write reviews but this was a bad experience. Not sure what problem was because nobody said anything except Dr will be in to see you.
