    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.

    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.

So sad to see the other reviews for Dr. Lajoie. She is literally the most caring and conscientious doctor we have ever had and she literally saved our daughter's life a few years ago. She has gone above and beyond.....calling outside of office hours, facilitating transfers from other hospitals and meeting us at the door in the middle of a Sunday night. If she hadn't moved out of our area to her current location, I would have followed her regardless of the office staff situation!

The office staff of Dr. Lajoie is beyond TERRIBLE. We left Dr. Lajoie's office for mainly that reason. If you need anything sent to other doctors from this office you have to hound them, and generally takes over a year, no exaggeration. Stay away. Terrible.
