Dr. Wendy M Baer has the following 3 specialties

  • Psychosomatic Medicine
  • 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.

Very Helpful

I was only able to visit with Dr. Baer 3 times because of my insurance. If I could, I would still be under her care.

excellent - smart, kind, caring

i saw two other psychiatrists before going to dr. baer. after meeting them, i wondered what, exactly, i was supposed to be getting out of it. but once i met with dr. baer, i instantly knew what i was supposed to get out of seeing a psychiatrist.dr. baer is wonderful. she takes the time to make sure you understand exactly what's going on with your diagnosis, but she doesn't patronize. she's also refreshingly specific in many of her suggestions to cope with mental illness. the other psychs i saw were so general - push yourself, work through it, it'll get easier, etc. dr. baer writes out specific plans with me, and every time i leave her office, i have a sheet of paper neatly laying out everything i need to do until the next time i see her. she also is a genuinely warm, caring, and kind person. i'm comfortable talking to her about things that i didn't want to mention to the other psychs i saw. she's easygoing with a great sense of humor, but she's also very serious about making sure you get exactly what you need from her. i feel like she goes out of her way to make me comfortable seeing and talking to her, and i look forward to my appointments with her.the one downside is that it's a bit of a wait to get an appointment if you're a new patient - i had to wait about a month - but then, for good specialists, you almost always have to wait at least that long.
