Specialties

Dr. James M Marcum 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.
    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.

Very Nice but Didn't Help

While he was courteous and seemed to listen very well for the first few visits, he never seemed to listen about my concerns involving the medication he prescribed including looking into a lower costing medication (I couldn't afford the ones he kept prescribing and he wouldn't listen about my financial constraints at all), the side effects I was experiencing, or my requests to try something else. In the end the medications started causing minor seizures and I stopped taking them and found a new doctor who would listen more.

Its been many years but A very fine psychiatrist, knowledgeable, caring and firm in his perceptions after thorough review

It has been MANY years since I was this man's patient however believe that no one could change so much that he could have become so different that he is not still worthy of being considered a very competent physician and care giver in all facets of his practice. His military service only adds dimension to his ability to reach across the different ethnic , racial and religious backgrounds that make this particular field a bit more difficult.
