Dr. Scott A Mcwilliams 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.

I have been a patient of Dr.McWilliams for almost the entire time he started his practice. You can actually go there and TALK to him and he listens. He never rushes you, you never have to wait long to see him. And his ENTIRE office staff is second to none. That being said, I cant tell you how much he has helped me with my medical problems.Again, in my opinion Dr.McWilliams is THE BEST.
I fired my first Neurologist and Dr. McWilliams came highly recommended. For my 1st visit, he actually went through the MRI with me and noted some things that were important. I have loads going on, but he made me feel confident that he was on his A game with me. The staff was amazing since the second you walked in the door to the follow up appointment.
I would not recommend Dr. Mc Williams to anyone. I went to him at the reference of a rehab physician. Mc Williams was only interested in whether or not I was involved in a lawsuit. He had little regard for me as a patient or person. He pushed medication on me which was not something I ever wanted. I took it once then threw it away. Had my injury not impacted my judgement, I never would have gone back. Obviously something wasnât functioning correctly. As a doctor he sucked. His associates however were fantastic as was his office staff.
