Dr. John C Witt has the following 3 specialties
- Vascular 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.
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.

Saw only the Nurse Practicioner. She was not helpful, and after 2 appointments with her and 2 tests she had a very unprofessional and rude coversation with the nurse within my hearing about my questions.
I don't see doctors unless I'm extremely sick. I received 2 shots for what I thought was a sinus infection, 12 hours before my PC sent me to the ER with neurological issues. After CT Scans and other evaluations the ER doctor suggested I see a Neurologist a.s.a.p. I was able to get an appointment with his assistant within 2 days of my ER visit. She was very sweet and listened to all of my different symptoms I was having, which was about 10 things at this time. I had to call them within a week with new symptoms (face swelling, delayed speech, comprehension etc.) and asked to see the doctor. He didn't have any open appointments. A week later I had more symptoms to report and asked to see him again... still I must not have been sick enough. They sent me to have several test done throughout this waiting game that I was playing. Another week I had more new symptoms..... still not sever enough. Overall I had a total of 48 symptoms which I had never experience before. Finally, after 2 1/2 months of waiting, I got to see the doctor which had no concern nor answers for me... I still had some lingering symptoms but nothing for him to worry about. This was a very scary health problem and truly thought I could be dieing and they/he didn't have the time to listen or see me. Also, in this rating I gave them 1 star for follow up after visit - it was an accident - the never followed up.... they also recommend a overall rating it should be a -1star not a full star.
