Specialties

Dr. William G Preston 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.

He'll get back to you when he gets back to you.

That's the response we got from the front desk, over a week has past since the MRI was done. Patient has neck and back pain daily, it's intolerable... But doctor will get to you when he gets to you.

So glad to have found Dr Preston

Shunt installed 3 yrs ago a good 15 years after traumatic brain injury that I ignored until it couldn't be ignored any longer. Shunt doesn't seem to be working right as symptoms are back. Dr. Preston took my/my wife's concerns very seriously, promptly ordered thorough testing to find out just what the problem is. If I remember I'll update this after the weekend when I see him again to find out the lab results. What I most like is feeling like someone who matters, not just an account or a time slot or someone complaining about a vague problem.
