Specialties

Dr. Laura M Worrel 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.

Awesome Doctor

I feel extremely blessed that I have had Dr Worrel as my doctor for around 10 years. She genuinely cares and wants to see me getting better.

She's phony and lacks knowledge

She acts concerned, but as soon as you ask questions about your treatment, she becomes defensive, condescending and has a God-complex. She told me a med didn't cause drowsiness and wouldn't listen even after I showed her the bottle that listed - "may cause drowsiness". She'd rather be right than work with you. She thinks medication (her pat formula that she prescribes to everyone - no other options) is the only treatment. Don't be fooled by her fake cheery disposition. It masks the fact that she's self -absorbed, doesn't know the meds she's prescribing and doesn't keep up on current research. Asks her some hard questions, suggest alternative meds and she how she responds. She'll belittle you and act like you're crazy. She's in it for the money & ego - not because she cares.
