Dr. Lysle Baumgartner 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.

This man needs to be a patient instead of a doctor.

Years ago I saw Dr. Baumgartner after going through several weeks of counseling to see him. His eyes were floating. I recognized him from the past, but could not remember specifically how he had messed me up in the head. On this visit he offered generic Depakote. I asked him if there were more likely side effects between regular Depakote and generic. He said it was "less tolerated." After more questioning and later study I found that although it was a lot cheaper, the fact that the generic didn't have the extra coating meant that it would tear up my internal organs a lot quicker. I wonder how many people he's been responsible for putting in the ground with lines like "less tolerated." I left his office and never returned.
