Specialties

Dr. Lester M Sandman 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.

This doctor was highly recommeded to me; he seems to know a lot about psychiatric meds, but he did not know how to treat me when the bad side effects out-weighed any good they did. I would not recommend him.

when my daughter saw Dr. Sandman he was rude to me. she didn't tell me she didn't like him until I found out she was only seeing him 10 minutes at a time when I was paying for 20. he also only saw one diagnosis and didn't take the effort to see anything else.

Great Doctor

I originally started seeing him for an L&I claim. He was tasked to be Psychiatrist AND Psychologist, and he tried his best to be the touchy, feely type a Psychologist is, but he is better suited for Psychiatry. He tried his best to listen to my problems, but he just isn't suited for that role as well. He is an great Psychiatrist though, and that's what he normally does, so I appreciate him doing the best he could for me, even though it wasn't the role he is used to doing.
