Specialties

Dr. Lovegildo S Garcia Jr 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.

I was fortunate and blessed to receive care from Dr. Garcia

My legs had become paralyzed over the period of a week. I had several Doctors appointments but no solutions. Eventually I was sent to Hardin Memorial by a VA Doctor, Dr Garcia came to see me at about eleven o'clock at night. He did an exam, ordered some tests for that night. Within a day he took all the labs and test results to make a diagnosis. Treatment was started and I started getting better. This doctor knows what he is doing. Still have a long way to go, but I have the greatest confidence that the best doctor is taking care of me. I am a little older (66) which doesn't help. I am in good hands.

Dana (Office Manager) very RUDE and rolls eyes

Dana who is the office manager is VERY rude and very short with patients and staff. She rolls her eyes at patients and is an overall mean human being with no bedside manner. Rudest person I have EVER encountered in the medical field.
