Specialties

Dr. Lauro M Amezcua Patino 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.

Great Diagnosing skills and Second Opinion

I went to Dr. Patino to get a second opinion for my 13 year old daughter who had suffered with ADHD her entire life. I was unable to ever get a clear diagnosis for her or the correct medication. Dr. Patino did not push medications on my daughter and was very open to hearing what our beliefs were on treatment. However, he also was very firm with us as a family in admitting that we all needed to come together to make sure she got help. I was very impressed with him and his assistant Lauren. They were great to work with and they worked together smoothly. The testing they did at the office helped our daughter tremendously. We cannot say enough about him and Lauren PA. The staff, at times, were difficult to get on the phone, as it appears they are short staffed a lot of the time. However, overall we were satisfied with the experience.

Five Stars

Dr. Patino took time to review all my concerns and discuss potential outcomes for each treatment scenario. He was very helpful in explaining things to me in terms that I could understand. Since I saw him first last year my life has been a complete 180 and couldn't be happier
