Specialties

Dr. Mark E James 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.

Great Psychiatrist

Dr. James is the only Psychiatrist I've ever used and I couldn't be more pleased or recommend him more highly. When I first saw him about 7 years ago I was having my first bout with serious depression. His diagnosis was right on the money and the first two medications he prescribed had me feeling my normal self in less than 10 days. My meds have never changed during my treatment.

Horrible experience!

He took 96 hours to refill my SSRI! Last fall he spent 5 minutes with me my second appointment, gave me a 90 day supply with refill and never followed up with me. How negligent! Waiting room is dark and unstaffed, chair in office was visibly torn.
