Specialties

Dr. Lendel M Taylor 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.

Do not make the mistake I did!

Worst doctor ever, was 10 minuets late for an appointment due to a car accident, which I called ahead and he refused to see me! But I had to pay a 35.00 for missed appointment fee. How this man is even considered a doctor is beyond me! Before you even start speaking to him, he is writing out a prescription to give you, non caring money hungry sorry excuse to the medical field

DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS DOCTOR

I wish there was less than one star because this office doctor AND STAFF deserve to be shut down. The older receptionist yelled at me multiple times and overcharged me and my mother. They dropped me as a patient because I was about to switch to medicaid and find a new doctor and didn't give me enough medication to last me till i find a new doctor. The doctor is a snooty and arrogant human and he is like talking to a wall. PLEASE save yourself the time and find someone else to take care of your mental health needs because he is the biggest quack on the planet. None of the meds he put me on even touched the problem. He pushed Xanax on me when I was on an anxiety med prior to that that worked perfectly. Do not go to this doctor

Dr. Taylor is a great Psychiatrist!

Dr. Taylor is a caring and extremely intelligent Psychiatrist. He comes across a bit stoic, but once you get to know him he cares very much for his patients and actually has a great sense of humor. Don't believe all the bad reviews. Even I was upset with his practice at one point, but I missed a lot of appointments and didn't properly follow his treatment plan. After all of this he still accepted back into his practice after not hearing from me for over two years. I'm extremely happy to be back under his care.

First and Last Visit

I saw this doctor for the first time yesterday. He never really addressed the issue I went in for. Asked questions in areas ( like religion and reasons for my marriages and divorces with the implication that I was cheating) which were not relevant to my problem and after a 30 minute visit gave me a diagnosis that I not only disagree with ( he didn't tell me what it was, but I work in the field and know the codes) and others ( in the field) do as well. I felt judged because my religion is not his and because of my past history and will NOT go see or recommend him to any of my clients again.
