About Dr. John E Humphrey Jr MD
Dr. John E Humphrey Jr 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.

WORST, DONT COME HERE
Self-verified patient of Dr. John E Humphrey Jr - Posted on July 16th, 2018
Dr. Humphrey is the WORST 'psychiatrist' I've ever dealt with. He was ok at first, in total I saw him for around a year. I am 22 years old I am an adult, he would belittle me and change his demeanor around me and assume and treat me as though I was unintelligent. Where as, when I saw him interacting with other patients of more age, he was less condescending. He never listened to my concerns truly, yes, he is the one in charge, however, it is his JOB to provide me with proper well managed mental care. Which he not only failed at medically ( he basically used me as a test dummy for just about any pill you can name ) but the MAIN REASON I WILL NEVER EVER go here or see this disgrace of a psychiatrist is because >>>>> I had an alcohol substance abuse issue which I was managing with the help of outsourced rehab (I no longer drink now) but he tried to give me a pill that would make me sick if I consumed any alcohol, which is one thing...but I am not kidding you he LOOKED ME DEAD IN THE EYES SQUATTED IN FRONT OF ME AND SAID VERBATIM 'I want you to drink on this pill so you'll feel pain' That is totally out of hand beyond messed up this was 2 years ago and I am still traumatized by it and him Never bring your children here or yourself unless you want to be treated like trash

I read the reviews here and the ones that stand out are his drug prescribing habits. He certainly was happy to prescribe too many drugs for me to take. Yes, he was nice but did he listen?? The drugs caused me to have painful muscle spasms, insomnia, couldn't sit still and loss of interest in life. I became a zombie. It was scarey and every time I told him about what was happening he gave me more drugs. By the way I'm off the drugs and feel wonderful. I was told by 2 other psychiatrists Dr. Humphrey's diagnoses were in fact wrong.
Dr. Humphrey is the best psychiatrist who has ever treated me.

I recommend Dr. Humphrey to anyone looking for a psychiatrist. Dr. Humphrey is a very humble, gentle, kind, and caring man. He genuinely likes people, and it shows. Most importantly he has an intellect above his peers. He ran two hospitals at once and was president of the American Psychiatric Society for this area. He is a wonderful psychopharmacologist. I have a condition that is difficult to diagnose. He diagnosed it three years earlier than the norm for this condition. He, furthermore, observed my comments and behaviors and sent me to another specialist. I was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Most importantly, though, my chronic pain is being treated, and is significantly less. Thanks to Dr. Humphrey the quality of my life is improved and I am more functional. Dr. Humphrey saved my life twice, and helped me manage my pain and become more functional. Dr. Humphrey is the gold standard, and I would not want to be seen by anyone else. He's a great physician.
Being Over Diagnosed
Self-verified patient of Dr. John E Humphrey Jr - Posted on May 28th, 2012
I was surprised at Dr. Humphrey's use of labels, prescribing habits and wonder if he really heard what I had to say? What about who I am and all the things I've accomplished? I was having trouble sleeping and before long he was prescribing way too many drugs.I decided this route for not for me. My sleeping troubles went away on their own.
