Specialties

Dr. Susan M Schmidt-Lackner has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

Unpleasant and rude

I have a PPO, and this woman will not take it, but charges an outrageous amount of $400.00 dollars per visit. I am only reimbursed $100.00 from my insurance. She simply threw different medications at my autistic child hoping one would work. Any doctor can do this with a little research. She refuses to refill my child's medications unless I see her every 3 months. She is extremely neurotic, and treats people like dirt! See this doctor at your own risk.

Might be a good doctor but rude and condescending

Found it difficult to have a discussion with her as she was abrupt and rude. She may be a good doctor but she is very difficult to communicate with.
