Specialties

Dr. Laura Y Li has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Did not address my symptoms. Did not ask questions. Did not follow up with additional tests after doing one. Told me to take care of my physical and emotional health.

She is a very intelligent and capable doctor. I think my biggest trouble is that I am not as intelligent as she is and she talks very fast with an accent. I try to follow along and have learned much about my epilepsy from her when I could. I felt she genuinely cared when I lost a baby and she took the time to explain the rating system they use for medications that can and cannot be taken during pregnancy. I have seen her several times over the last 3 years or so. She was very kind to my school age daughter who came with me on one of my appointments and explained, in terms my daughter could understand, just what the tests she was doing on me were for and how the brain works -my daughter left there thinking she wanted to be a neurologist like Dr. Li.
