Specialties

Dr. Kermit A Lloyd has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.
    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.

Nothing

DR Lloyd was nice and personable, but at the same time condescending patronizing. I have severe progressive nerve damage in my right foot and part of my leg. It is debilitating and painful and it was a nightmare. He would always compare me to other people that had it worse. Even serviceman that have been wounded, like he was trying to make me feel guilty because I'm complaining about my little old nerve damage. I can appreciate other peoples maladies, but it doesn't make my pain any less. He ordered tests for me MRIs, MG's and he prescribe me gabapentin and lyrica as my pain became worse the gabapentin and lyrica we're not working and I begin to ask him for other medications and now he's accusing me I'm trying to get drugs I guess you get high. That was the implication in a letter he sent me. He never even advised me that I could have drop foot surgery, I called a Robin Vargo an orthopedic surgeon on my own and she did the surgery and I am recovering and I think my foot will be better than ever. No thanks to dr. Lloyd. And no thanks Riverside pain management who were useless to me. I went through having a spinal cord stimulator trial for a week, and then nothing no surgeon would do the permanent stimulator I even went to University of Virginia and talk to a doctor there and I never heard back from him. I decided to see another neurologist for a second opinion, and what he could do for my pain even if it meant prescribing narcotics I've read lots of articles where narcotics are prescribed for nerve damage when other medications fail to work. Dr Lloyds clinical coordinator referred me to a doctor Singh, because she said I couldn't see another neurologist within the same group. I get a letter from Dr Lloyd saying that he's dropping me as a patient because I'm seeing this neurologist and saying that I'm asking for drugs. Hello! I was asking for drugs because I'm N excruciating pain. He just doesn't get it
