Specialties

Dr. Paul R Lessem 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.

Dr. Lessem is very professional and I trust him completely. A small office, direct contact with the Doctor, no other staff. Returned call promptly and got an appointment in a couple of days. No waiting, spends a good amount of time and don't feel rushed. He is polite and soft spoken, refreshing demeanor.

left me

I had seen his wife as my therapist for over 5 years. I seen dr. Lessem only a couple of times. When my 13 year old became bipolor I turned to the Lessums for help. I was upset about an abusive hospital that my son was in out west. Dr. Lessem returned my concern by telling me to never call him again. He did not listen to anything I had to say, nor did his wife. The hospital later closed down but after much anguish to my son and myself. This man does not listen to his patients concerns and feels that things need to be done his way and only his way.
