Specialties

Dr. Lukas Alexanian 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.

One Star

Stay away! He asks leading questions so that you respond how he would like for you to respond so that he can justify prescribing unnecessary medications. He is also very rude and arrogant.

Unsympathetic rude

The most disgusting person I've ever came across. Very disrespectful, angry man who needs some serious help himself. I contacted him to ask for help thinking he was an experienced doctor and instead I was harassed by rude comments telling me I was uneducated and shouldn't even talk. He kept interrupting me from explaining the situation regardless from what I had to say he contantly continued with his hurtful unsympathetic comments. From a phycistrist I was expected a little bit more comforting words of advice or help. My child has been under his care and has only gotten worse by time. Such a rude person should never have the right to deal with patients who are sensitive, vulnerable, and need sympathy along with constant care. I would never recommend such a disrepectful, unsympathetic, rude "person"

One Star

This Physician DOES NOT CARE AT ALL about his patients. He immediately talks about the form of pay as soon as he starts treatment, doesn't do anything to go out of his way and will wash his hands of the patient at first opprotunity. He doesn't care--you are not a doctor if you don't care especially when dealing with such vulnerable patients.

Satisfied

I have been to quite a few doctors over the years and decided to give Alexanian a try since a friend referred me. I must say unlike others, the wait time was less than 10 minutes, staff was nice and the area was kept clean. He made sure I understood the diagnosis, and it didn't take an hour. I will be coming again.
