Specialties

Dr. Richard L Shriner has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • 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.

Five Stars

Dr Shriner, during the time I was seeing him, helped me make some significant changes or adaptations in my life. He was intellectually engaging and a good educator. I always had complete trust in Dr Shriner. Not only was he my psychiatrist but also one of the best therapists I've ever had. I would recommend Dr Shriner and I would go to him again if the need arose.

QUACK!

He will make you think you are sicker than you really are, by asking you lude questions. He's probably the sick one. He will jump up your dose and mix it up with others with out seeing what a prier dose will do. Al at the same time convincing you that it is a great idea and that it will not hurt you. After seeing him my life suffered a GREAT deal. If anyone gets a chance to read this I urge you please if you have a problem of some kind DON't see Dr.Shriner, PLEASE.
