- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.
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.

Staff was far less than pleasant, if not down right rude. Doctor was quick to make assumptions regarding care without asking questions or interpreting observations. They made a mistake when calling in prescription. For 2 days, all calls to his office to have prescription corrected were taken by ANSWERING SERVICE. Apparently office staff does not take calls. Don't know where messages fell through the cracks but was unable to start meds for 2 days. Worst experience I've ever had with medical professional and their staff. Wouldn't let them care for a dog.
dr hormes no longer cares about his patients. Glad I found one who does. With his notes he couldn't rember what was discussed. Asked for my records. Took 3 months! The staff is horriable. Even the notes were wrong, glad I had my own notes from visits. Sad when a dr smirks when discussing stopping meds.
I am fine with Dr Hormes but his staff is one of the worst i've ever experienced. They don't seem to like one another and definitely don't go beyond what is required to make a person feel comfortable. They are rude on the phone and in person. They take entirely too long to return calls and you NEVER can call the doctor.
