Specialties

Dr. Sharon P Nations has the following 4 specialties

  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

  • 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.

Wonderful bedside manner

My husband has been treated by Dr Nations for about 10 yrs now. She is always dedicated to his care while we are there and asks him about how he feels and his care specifically. We love her interest and bedside manner she has for her patients.

I am currently a patient

Dr. Nations is a very concerned and detailed oriented doctor, she approaches issues with "We will find out what is wrong and treat it" some others in the past just say "I can't find anything unusual call me if anything changes"

Thank you Dr. Nations

Dr.Nations is excellent in her field of neurology. She diagnosed me in 2 visits where I have seen others in a 10 year period. She clearly understand neurology and she is up to date in various research. She did testing to complete her findings which validated diagnosis. You may have to wait at times to get appt. or at your visit, give her an opportunity to help you. Her and staff very professional and take time to explain testing,diagnois,so that patient understands.
