Dr. Shaena H Blevins has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Today was my first visit with Dr. Blevins and I was a nervous wreck. Just my personality....I absolutely adore her, and I am very picky with doctors since my career was in the medical field. She made me feel at ease, took plenty of time to address my concerns. Feel so good that I have finally found a neurologist that I feel is on my team!
Dr. Blevins is an excellent Neurologist. She's very thorough, very personable and she cares. She doesn't rush you through, like your on an assembly line. My only complaint is that she doesn't come to Blarsviile once a week any more, but she's worth the trip across Blood Mountain for the knowledge and quality. I would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Blevins is the neurologist I have searched for. She is not only very knowledgable, but also sympathetic to my condition. It is VERY hard to find a neurologist who understands just how painful trigeminal neuralgia can be! She sees me whenever I need to be. She is a true Godsend to me. I would recommend no other.
