Specialties

Dr. Paul W Hurd 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.

He's lost his touch.....

My husband saw Dr. Hurd in the past for a seizure disorder and we felt he did a fairly good job, good enough to go back when he began having additional issues. Sad to say that we were sent away with a "diagnosis" but no treatment, just a statement that he would have to deal with the symptoms as they worsened over time. When I looked treatments up online and spoke to colleagues (I am an RN) I found that this was completely untrue, there are treatments for what he diagnosed that could potentially help my husband out. I'm sad that Dr. Hurd is so willing to send a patient who is struggling with an issue with a diagnosis but nothing to make it better, not even a double check on the seizures to make sure they are in check (absence seizures). Apparently Dr. Hurd has decided that it isn't about the patient- it's only about the money, too bad he was a good neurologist in the past.

Totally unprofessional

Office staff rude-first impression not great. Once I met the doctor, the obnoxious staff started to actually look good. Dr. Hurd is so arrogant. He never looks you in the eyes, has zero charm or bedside manner, and acts like he is bored to death. They never return calls and assistant gave incompetent diagnosis over the phone. This man should not be in practice.

Pompous

Dr. Hurd has an "I already know what your problem is" kind of attitude. You will be just another number to him. He spends a lot of time criticising how other doctors practice, when he really should be concerned with how he and his staff are treating their own patients. Lets just say, he really likes himself. NOT A FAN of this guy.

excellent

I've been a patient of Dr. Hurd's for over 25 years. In my estimation, he is an excellent neurologist, with an abundance of common sense.

Good doctor

Good doctor. Be careful not to need anything from Staff on Friday since they close at noon. This includes medication.
