Specialties

Dr. Lynn Alvarez has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Dr. Alvarez saw me promptly a few years ago and did what I consider to be a thorough assessment while remaining sensitive as well. We worked on meds together and she was able to hit on a combo that worked well. We also did vigorous and lasting work in therapy. I'm happy to say I've graduated! But I will miss seeing her. I'd highly recommend her to people looking for a psychiatrist.

Caring and professional

I saw her a few years ago and she helped me greatly. She was professional and caring and when I needed more guidance she helped me find the right person to assist me with other matters in my life. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

One Star

It is easy to get an appointment with this doctor but then the really bad doctors do have appointments available. I should have known better but when you are suffering you will go anywhere that will help you. This doctor was not accurate in diagnosing my illness and gave me medications that could have seriously compromised my health. NEVER again.

a psychiatrist who needs a psychiatrist

This doctor is not stable herself, mentally. Check her credentials and history, how many offices she's worked in, reports to medical oversight agencies. My advice would be to seek out a mental health professional who doesn't need so much help herself.
