Dr. Richard Bowden 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.

betrayed and set up by my personal doctor

for 15 months i was under his care for depression and anxiety (of my own free will). after 15 months with zero success with my problems i found out that he conspired with my wife to help have me commited to Carl Albert mental health facility in hand cuffs, while he was still MY doctor, by my choice. unknown to myself, she and he, had a private conference and he explained how she could have me forceably taken out of my vehicle, handcuffed, and taken to the mental facility without so much as reading my rights or saying a word about where i was being taken or why. it didnt work though, i was released after two and a half hours. too bad, it was a pretty good plan.
