Specialties

Dr. Don M Lagrone 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.
    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.

Superlatives - not because of anything else but his kindness, understanding, patience, and wealth of knowledge.

I have been going to Dr. Lagrone for 4.5 years. He has helped in me so many ways. He is always positive and uplifting and empathetic about my situation. He always returns my calls in a prompt manner. He listens. He listens. He remembers. Doctors are concerned about financials. They want to move patients fast and then just prescribe meds. Meds are important, but listening and understanding are the things that help patients alot. And Dr. Lagrone does that very well.

Very Different from any other doctor

I have shuffled around to many psychiatrists, and I got to say I recently went to my first appointment with Dr. Lagrone and was thoroughly impressed. Instead of the most Doctors I went to who just started out asking me about my symptoms and how I was feeling and then write a script....he focused more on asking me questions about the specific experiences that caused my symptoms. Which lead me to understand that he is NOT the typical doctor who is their to treat the symptoms, but the underlying problem. I have had a specific side effect that I have dealt with for 2 years now, and it has effected my life tremendously. Ever other doctor just told me that I would "just have to deal with it". Dr. Lagrone was empathetic to how I felt and didn't say that. He put me on a plan that will hopefully eliminate the side effect. Finally, most doctors shuffle you in and out as soon as possible. Dr. Lagrone spent about 1.5 hour with me and never looked at the clock. First time appointment with him- thoroughly impressed. It's not surprising he has a 'Most Compassionate Doctor' award up on his wall for Houston.

I'd Never Go Anywhere Else

Dr. LaGrone is THE BEST psychiatrist anyone can see. He is extremely knowledgeable in every area, including knowledge of medications and their effects. Your session with him is an hour and for that hour he is completely focused on you. He is a great listener, knows exactly what to ask to get the information he needs for his assessment, and gives the greatest advice and coping skills to take with you. I have been to many doctors for myself and for my daughter, and I would never go to anyone else again
