Specialties

Dr. Lucy W Preyer has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Discerning, caring, partner in health!

Dr. Preyer has helped me with very complex trauma related symptoms; she thinks "outside the box" when med trials are not effective or cause me side effects. She respects me as an individual, takes into account my abilities, strengths, weaknesses and limitations. She is attentive, understanding, compassionate, always available and responsive. She has advocated for me against difficult circumstances. I'm amazed to experience such a relationship with a physician and very grateful! She is a true gem.

I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Preyer has been my doctor for about 4 years. She is easily the best psychiatrist I have ever had. She is always very professional while being very caring and protective of her patients at the same time. Psychiatry is a difficult science, and many doctors mean well, but still don't seem to have the knack for it. It is always a very great challenge to try to treat abnormal neurology in the brain. Having a feel for the science makes all the difference in the world when a doctor must prescribe the complicated combinations of medications and treatments required to help mental patients live life in as close to a normal manner as possible. Dr. Preyer really seems to have this feel for psychiatry. I would recommend her to anyone.
