Dr. John M Whapham 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.

Dr. Whapham is an amazing person and that says a lot about what kind of surgeon he is. His dedication to his craft and compassion that he has for his patients are second to none. I am a patient of Dr. Whapham's and it was by far the best experience i have ever had with the medical industry as a whole. He is innovative in his thinking of what medical care could be in the future and what he is doing right now. Dr. Whapham is hands down the the only neurologist that I would want with my life in his hands. That said I would trust him with my life anytime. This kind of care doesnt come around often if ever for some patients. Thank you Dr Whapham for your hard work and dedication, without you in place there would be a more negative ending to most patients stories.
Dr. Whapham is amazing. My mom made it through her Nero Vascular surgery only because he is a wonderful doctor. He even doubted himself, as her aneurysm was one of the worst he had ever seen. He told her maybe she should get another opinion. Which it takes a really strong and good doctor to admit he was afraid and unsure. As most act as though they know everthing. He even flew in other surgeons just for her. We love him!!!
What a true asset he is for any hospital to have. He was compassionate and showed great concern for us. He spent time explaining what was happening and he was correct every time when others there were not. We were on vacation when Larry suffered a brain aneurysm. We believe Dr. Whapham is an angel sent from God. We would recommend him above all others.
One would be incredibly lucky to have Dr. Whapham as a doctor! He is absolutely amazing! I've seen his work, not only on my grandmother, but in other cases too, and i was absolutely blown away with the accuracy of diagnosis, surgery, keeping watch on ICU and correcting their errors. His dedication is complete. The only doctor I would recommend in a huge, huge radius. Pure genius
