Specialties

Dr. William M Irvin Jr has the following 4 specialties

  • Geriatric 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.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • 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.

A Great Psychiatrist

I really like Dr. Irvin Jr. - he's the best psychiatrist I've seen! He treats patients like we're human beings and not just another patient to see. He actually smiles and is in a good mood every time I've seen him. He really listens and wants to help.

Wouldn't let me edit my last review. The office staff member that was rude gave me ANOTHER staff member's name when I told her I was filing a complaint. The office manager did not correct her, so I thought she was telling the truth. Courtney was not even in the office the day of my appointment. Very unprofessional first impression.Pros:-Kind and caring doctor-Works with you on samples, insurance, etc-Listens-Clean office-Convenient locationCons:-Hard to get a call back when needed-Wait can be long even with appointment earlier in dayOverall, Dr. Irvin Jr. is a doctor I would recommend, even with the issues I have had with some of the office staff.

Doctor is great, Office Staff is TERRIBLE!

My first visit with Dr. Irvin JR was great. He was very friendly and seemed like he was truly listening when I spoke. He related with me, and told about experiences of his own. He made me feel at ease.However, his office staff is an entirely different story. I walked into this nice office, and the receptionist (Courtney) was in a stained t-shirt and yoga pants. She was not friendly, at all. She was on the phone complaining about patients on Medicaid. The next visit, Courtney was outright rude to me - as was the office manager. I asked to file a complaint and she laughed at me and told me to leave.Overall, I do not recommend this office (off Olde Cabin Road), but I DO recommend this doctor. He's great!
