Specialties

Dr. Wael Hamo 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.

Not Pleased

He made me feel rushed. I understand he was saying and didn't wanna listen to what I had to say which one thing is since my brain surgery from awesome UAB I did lose most of my hearing my right ear. I wouldn't recommend him and to add to that a few nurses were about as rude.

Not recommend

He is beyond rood. He does not listen to anything you say there's been numerous times I asked him questions and he ignored me and walked out the door! He yelled at me while having a seizure because I couldn't understand what he wanted me to do when he was checking my reflexes. He kept asking me if I need pain shots for my back and I don't have back trouble. I don't recommend him for any serious conditions.

stay away

He let my 22 year old daughter die!!! She was almost 5 months pregnant and had bad seizures. He never increased her meds as she got further along, and was having more seizures. Come on, I even read that was proto call for pregnant woman, and i 'm not a doctor. Pretty bad when you can read the internet and get better medical advice. Don't trust anybody to this man...matter of fact, Alabama needs to step up ALL medical personnel, especially doctors. Only been here 5 years, and it's pathetic the help you get here.
