Specialties

Dr. Lucy J Brown 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.

Worst psych I've ever had. She treated me like an experiment and tried to fit my case to her interests. Talked more than I did and sometimes over me. Poor choices for medications, and when I went to a very reputable doctor after she hurt me, he was not surprised. She may work for you, but please advocate for yourself and be aware that she can be very damaging.

She does more than a doctor she truely cares!!!!

She goes beyond any doctor I ever met. Yes she is not the type that looks at her watch and saids hour over and leaves you in a dilema as so many do. Its not for the money either she charges less than another doctor I see of 5 -10 minutes for recheck. Yes at times you might have to wait a little longer in waiting room. You know she is working with someone intensly and needs her. That is what you call a doctor. Understanding her patients are with this becuase mostly everyone needs her longer at least once or more over the timed scheule. She never ever rushes you out of that office. I always tell her if it was not for her I would not know what to do and so so very proud of myself with her as my guardian angel. I found me again and she worked hard with me, and I appreciate it every day of my life. She is the number 1 doctor around
