Specialties

Dr. Timothy W West has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Best M.S. Nwurologist in the country

Smart, current, knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly. Everything anyone could want for a doctor in his field... After having long discussions about treatment protocol, both medication and alternative subjects Dr. West has left quite an impression on me, and will be sorely missed as Academia steals one of the best from us. Dr. Timothy William West has helped me manage and control my Multiple Sclerosis, thank you sir, safe trip on your sojourn North.

Exceptional Care

I read the previous review and assume that patient is insane. She must be talking about someone else. I know Dr West and have been treated very well in his care. He can bring hope to a dismal diagnosis. I appreciate his concern and his impressive listening skills. He gives great ideas and a plan of action that is actually helpful. He will go the extra mile for his patients. He is one of the few doctors that is a diamond in the rough of Vegas. I hope more patients will show their appreciation for him so he will stay here in the dessert. We are lucky to have Dr West and his unique talents. His staff is very kind and wonderful!
