Dr. Larry E Cummins has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

I have not had one good experience with this doctor. No one ever answers the office phone even during office hours; if you leave a voicemail you will not get a call back. I've left voicemails 3 different times and have never heard anything. I was 5 minutes late to an appointment and they made me wait nearly two hours and let two other people go in front of me. The doctor takes over 30 minutes in between patients, and even when I'm the only appointment they have in the mornings, I am still forced to wait over 30 minutes before I am seen. The doctor has never even looked at my face, he's too busy messing around on his computer. Hands down most unprofessional, rude, inconsiderate, and obnoxious doctors office I've ever been to. Do not seek help there because you will not find it!
