Specialties

Dr. Scott Lawrence 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.

ALL THESE REVIEWS ARE WRONG

These negative reviews are so stupid, its as if each one does not even understand psychiatry. His office DOESNT MATTER IF ITS LUXURY OR NOT.

Poor bedside manner

Degrading, minimizes your concerns, interrupts in order to rush you along for he lacks compassion and appears as though he dislikes his career. One of the few psychiatrists left who takes insurance, with his narcissistic demeanor, its the only way for him to maintain patients.

This doctor has no bedside manner. His office is in shambles. Chairs are falling apart. His has files cabinet drawers all over the place. Never seen a doctor's office look so poorly. He has no personality, warmth or bedside manner. I would refer him to anyone.

Arrogant and rude.

I did not visit Dr. Scott Lawrence as his telephone manner was patronizing and rude. There is no way I could trust this "doctor."
