Specialties

Dr. Renee R Lamm has the following 4 specialties

  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • 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.

Excellent doctor. Very caring and knowledgeable

Dr. Lamm is a little different than most doctors. Most are on strict schedule, when the time is up. They get up and show you to the door. Dr. Lamm talks to her patients and cares about her patients. She's casual, informal, friendly and wicked smart and really knows her stuff. She conveys information in an easy to understand format and is very helpful. I would highly, highly, highly recommend her to anyone. Her only drawback is because she cares about her patients, she tends to talk to them too much and her calendar gets backlogged. I don't mind waiting a few extra minutes to talk to such a wonderful doctor.

could not recommend

While the doctor is knowledgeable and helpful, the office staff seems to be poorly trained and very disorganized. They were especially confused by the challenge of handling insurance forms and filing them correctly. There also appears to be a breakdown in communication between the separate office staff members, which I believe contributes to the unprofessional manner in which patients are treated. Not impressive.
