Specialties

Dr. Lawrence B Hurwitz 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.

Give It Time!

The difference in my child after 2 years of visits is astounding. She does not realize he is giving her the skills she can use for the rest of her life. Other people have even commented that they cannot believe the difference in her demeanor. If you or your child needs his help understand that it is not an overnight fix and give it time. You will see the results!

This quack after no sessions at Community hospital in the late 80's told my family that I was a schizophrenic without drawing my blood to rule out physiological conditions, which I had and still have and is controlled by diet. He destroyed my life and reputation. Good work you quack. Looking at your ill looking self at your age is clearly God's revenge against you. I went on and flourished, but my family brings his diagnosis up as an excuse for their abusiveness' towards me. Eay to go,Doc.
