  • 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.

Greatful to have him for a Dr

I went to Dr. Huddlestone knowing I was sick and thought I had MS but, he refused to diagnose me with anything without having a full thorough thorough check up and every test you can think of done! I'm greatful he cares so much about his patients and wants to help. I almost didn't get the chance to have him for a dr he was highly recommended by everyone I knew!

Blessed to have him as my Doctor

I was diagnosed with MS 15 yrs. ago. He has been the best doctor I could ever asked for. When I need an answer to a question, no matter how dumb I think it is, he always takes the time to explain it till I understand .He is a great and knowledgeable Doctor.

Best M.S. Specialist

I have been seeing Dr. Huddlestone for about 14 years for my multiple sclerosis. Though his office is an hour drive from my home, he is worth every mile. I have 100% confidence in his ability to figure out what is wrong with me and how to treat it. He is always willing to answer my questions & take the time needed to explain things. I hope he never retires.
