Specialties

Dr. Richard A Cottrell 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.

Quite simply, the best !!!

I've been a patient of his for a little more than a decade! I believe that alone speaks volumes as to the quality of care provided. There's a difference between someone who listens to you and someone that *hears* you. If you want to actually be heard, by someone whose jovial, kind hearted nature is positively infectious, there simply isn't anyone more qualified.

Excellent doctor

I have been a patient of Dr. Cotrell for several years. He has always listened to me and been available to listen to my symptoms and treat them. He even recognized that I needto see a neuroloogist...I was diagnosed wiyh a terminal brain disease with no know cause and no know cure and given 2 7 years to live. He didn't try to keep me coming to him....he appropriately referred me. I still see him now for treatment of my symptoms and he coordinates with my neurologist. I could never be more thankful for suc wonderful doctor!
