Dr. Laura B Beard 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.

Five Stars

It's so refreshing to find someone like Dr. Laura Beard in the medical profession. Who actually takes the time to accurately diagnose a problem and sincerely cares to help strengthen the mind-mentally as well as spiritually. Her compassion, knowledge and experience has aided me in my understandings/challenges. So many professionals now a days like to feel that by providing a Rx---will help but in reality it only--makes things a little more less clear and a lot less more feeling. Dr. Beard allows and helps you to feel an deal. I would recommend her 100%!

Best Psychiatrist

SMU recommended Dr. Beard and for me she's the best! I was hesitant on seeing a psychiatrist but her assistant or manager was the first person I spoke to & she really made me feel comfortable.
