Specialties

Dr. William T Garrett 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 interested in what family members have to say.

Family members are allowed in the exam room with our sister but we were completely ignored when we tried to give him information about her. We are there to provide information about her that she can't provide because she can remember. She has dementia but he talks to her as if she will remember everything he says and makes a joke if we are allowed to ask a question. Not impressed with Dr. Garrett.

I was actually called back before my appointment time. Appointment was at 4:15 and I was called back at 4:05 and left his office at 5. He spent around 35 minutes with me and explained every thing in great detail. I've used Dr Garrett off and on for several years and have found him to be one of the most caring and informed doctors I've ever met. He even sent me a letter explaining tests results and what he recommended and ended letter with hope you are feeling better and I'm here for you. Excellent care from this physician. A truly good person who cares about his patients.

Complete disregard for patient

I have been trying for a long time to get an appt but nurse Melissa never calls me back in a timely manner......if she does at all and no matter how many times I tell her to call my cell #....she calls a # that I'm not readily available at. When told about an emergency room visit and how the attending physician refused to do a test that dr garret had me ask they do....she just said ok...I will tell dr garret...and never heard back from them.....talk about lack of compassion for your patient!

Do not go to this Dr if you want personal attention

After misdiagnosing and treating me with medicines that several other neurologists described as antiquated for my condition, he insulted my mother and fiance because they asked questions...oh my, what a horrible thing to ask questions about a loved one. He spends no time with you, in the last 3 visits he spent less time in the room than his interns and staff...probably less than 25 minutes compared to the 2 1/2 hours I spent waiting to see him. He seems more intent on getting as many patients seen in one day (like cattle) than helping anyone.
