  • 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.

    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.

    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.

Five Stars

Dr. Detweiler treats me for PTSD, depression and problems related to these and aging, largely onset of cognitive deficits. He skillfully manages my treatment; he aggressively prescribes within the confines of the VA pharmacia, but keeps a tight rein and willingly changes dose or medicine for optimum effect.
