Dr. Lorna M Barte has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

From the moment I met Dr. Barte, I knew my life was going to taken care of. She is very intelligent, has a great "bedside manner" and treated me with respect and dignity. She prescribed the perfect medicine for my affliction. My primary doctor referred me to Dr. Barte. She's wonderful and I couldn't be happier.
If you are looking for a Doctor that is compassionate and kind keep on looking. I was referred to her by my own GP. I arrived 30 minutes early to fill in paperwork as they requested. I waited almost 2 hours in the waiting room as she took in other patients that came in after me. Multiple people came in and just spoke to the desk staff and to pick up their prescriptions of Zanax and were told that they had to reduce the quantity they were getting because the DEA was looking at them. Not something you really want to hear. When they finally called me in the first thing Dr. Barte said to me was "your answering machine isn't working". I said "I don't have an answering machine I have a cell phone with voicemail". She repeated her first comment as if I never said anything. She said we tried to call you yesterday and cancel your appointment. I said "I did receive a call from her office confirming my appointment. My appointment I made 2 months ago". Then she continued and said that she is not taking new patients and that she on,y greats people over 65 (geriatric psychiatry). Which was a lie since I saw many people come and go that were well under 65. She was rude, insulting and had absolutely no kindness or compassion. She also lowered herself to gossiping about my referring Doctor speaking absolute lies which was extremely unprofessional. Also, please do not fall for her scam of having her do a DNA test. The cost is $3000 and totally worthless as I found out when I showed it to my new psychiatrist. I could tell you more reasons why you should NOT see this doctor, but I hope this was enough to keep you looking somewhere else
