Dr. Janet L Lawhon has the following 3 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.

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

Odd procedures

Dr. Lawhon is very expensive, always late, cuts your sessions short because of her late arrival for your appointment which impacts her next patient and she is very expensive. When she started using a bowl, charms and more superstitious behaviors than normal psychiatric activities it was time to find a more conventional psychiatrist.

The best psychiatrist in Dallas

Dr. Lawhon is a truly gifted physician. She has the expertise in treating so many mental illness problems. As her patient, I am grateful for that, but it is her caring and compassionate connection with me that has made the greatest difference in my journey. She works with body, mind, and spirit, which is more than a quick fix. I would send all of my friends and family to her.

One Star

Does a lot of non-medical, non-evidence based stuff during expensive appointments. Crystal bowls, chakra realignment, etc., which one could get from a person off the street. On time once. Frequently almost an hour wait.
