Dr. Ron Tintner has the following 3 specialties
- Clinical Neurophysiology
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.
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.

Oh. can't believe I found this info on Dr. Tintner! When he was at Baylor, he was the doctor I seen & I just loved him, he gave my injections w/ NO pain(lol)! Well, better than the others & always hit the right nerve(literally). I really need to see him again & sure hope that he can take my insurance.
My father had two aggressive episodes towards my mother and was up and wondering around all night due to Parkinson and/or medication. We went to Dr. Tintner for a sleeping pill in order for my father and mother to get sleep. Dr. Tintner took him off one of his drugs that causes agitation. He prescribed Seroquel. I would have expected him to follow up given the powerful dangerous side effects of the drug especially since the primary caregiver is a 75 year old woman. He did not and worse did not return her calls for two days. I have since learned Seroquel is primarily for Bipolar illness. My father does not have Bipolar. My father started hallucinating, paranoid and acting out. It landed him his only visit to a Psycho Ward and was there for 8 days. He is doing great now and will never return to Dr. Tintner!
