Specialties

Dr. Laura A Kalayjian has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Great Epileptologist for Women, or anyone

Dr. Kalayjian is very knowledgeable; up to date on treatments, medical and other. Dr. K has been studying the affects of epilepsy on women in particular and how it is different than that from men, which is very important when you're facing hormonal issues, pregnancy, perimenopause, menopause, stress, work, etc..... There is no-one that can surpass Dr. K on bed-side manner as she is #1; her moods are not taken to work, she gives you her full attention, she keeps you part of your caretaking team - YOU are ultimately in charge - she has never talked down to me. The staff at USC Neurology is very attentive and like family. I can't say anything bad about Dr. K or the staff, and I've been with them for over 10 years. She's brilliant and down to earth - what more could you ask for.

Five Stars

Excellent communication skills and evident empathy when working with my adult brain injured son. I have had experience with a lot of doctors over the twenty years since my son's accident and she rates at the top with a few others. Grateful for the referral!

A real life saver

I was lucky enough to get in to see her in just a few days with a very unusual problem. She was top notch. Incredibly thorough and kind. She was the third neurologist I had seen and you couldn't find a better doctor!
