Dr. Walter A Lajara-Nanson has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Dr. Lajara has been consistently kind and caring toward my daughter. He is empathic and wants to do what is best for her while taking my thoughts into consideration, since I am with her all the time. He has gently explained difficult subjects with compassion and it is obvious he really cares about my daughter.
When my wife started having seizures after brain surgery, Dr. Lajara really came through for us. He spent many hours at her side working to get the seizures in control, stopping in all hours of day and night while she was in ICU. We ow him a lot for that. His care continued to be sensitive, caring, and compassionate until he just got so busy that he hired a PA. The PA is nice enough and knowledgeable enough and we like her. THe only problem now is that we just can't see Dr. Lajara for anything; we didn't have a choice in having our primary neurological care changed from Dr. Lajara to his PA. We like her well enough, but would rather still see the doctor. If he's so busy because he's helping those who truly require his attention rather than just want it, then they're doing it right and we'll just have to get used to the change. The office staff is very professional, compassionate, and caring. The nurses almost always call back the same day but have dropped the ball once or twice. Appointments take a long, long, time to get but if you talk to the nurse and she recognizes the urgency of your request she will fit you in. When you do get there, wait times are short; they're prompt and efficient. They never appear or treat you as though they're rushed; on the phone or at the office, they always listen.
There are many good doctors but this isn't one of them. I am the caregiver for my niece who has a very rare and very serious form of Epilepsy. We came to Lajara after her pediatrician got her to seizure free after many very difficult years; when she became 18, we needed a doctor that was experienced in this type of Epilepsy, even though we do not live in Bartlesville, for two years every six months she had her checkups and there have been no problems. This summer, she had an accident on her horse and broke her neck. For six days she had to lay very still in a hospital, but after the six days, a very skilled surgeon fixed her neck and she was able to get out of bed a few hours later. She immediately fell to the floor; having a seizure. When I called Lajara's office to get help with her Epilepsy, he refused to call me back because I wasn't a doctor. His nurse was very rude and even asked me, "What do you want from us?". My husband later face to face asked him about this and he admitted that he doesn't talk to he family; he doesn't return calls unless it's a doctor.. Is he kidding? He's fired, that's what he is. I need a doctor that will help me wth my niece, not an over inflated ego.
Dr. Lajara was condescending and rude. He did not listen to my concerns. He acted like I was a waste of his time.
