Specialties

Dr. Travis W Waltrip has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

One Star

Dr. Waltrip said talking to me was useless since I was bipolar. He ignored the possibility of cerebral meningitis being a factor in my nervous breakdown two years later. He said I shouldn't breed but stay on lithium. If I got well, he'd lose a patient. So keep me sad. I passed an MMPI later in life. Go burn a BPHope magazine!

Excellent

After 3 years of being asked "are you OK?" And "need a refill?" - it's wonderful to have someone who asks real questions and listens to the answers and spends about 45 minutes with me instead of just 5 .

I was a patient of Dr. Waltrip for over 10 years and I believe I owe him for what I am today , alive and sane. Only reason I am not seeing him at present is because of driving distance

Finally, an excellent psychiatrist!

Dr Waltrip spends plenty of time with his patients so he can really understand and pinpoint what's going on with you. None of those drive through (15 minute) patient appontments! Finally I have found an excellent doctor for psychiatry.
