Specialties

Dr. Wayne H Cotton has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

from an exhausted Mom

Dr. Cotton is a very down to earth doctor.It is easy to envision him as a doctor and as a member of any given community... he really puts you and your child at ease.He is very wise about his overall interpretation, and looks at the patient and the family that is trying so hard to help. He is very professional, yet personable. My child finally found someone who was ready and willing to understand her and her needs.I did have to wait for my appointment. I also encountered some confusion as to what was completed and what needed to be completed. However, Dr. Cotton was the first professional who remembered that first and foremost my child is struggling and so is her family. It did not matter about the lateness nor the organization. My child and I both finally felt validated and relieved because Dr. Cotton's diagnosis/ explanation/ opinion/treatment were proper and to the point.As a parent, I am completely willing to let the silly stuff go as long as we are heard and respected for our part in the treatment process.

Dr Cotton is a good doctor and spends as much time as is needed with you. He takes notes and remembers things from your life & previous sessions. The two negatives are; A very poor response time to voicemails, and he is OFTEN very late and misses appointments frequently.
