Dr. Laura Anders, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

Let me tell you a little bit about my practice. I work business hours M-F and Saturday mornings. I'm not on any insurance panels so the fee is out of pocket. The initial evaluation is $450. Follow up appointments are $250. If you have a PPO you can apply for out of network reimbursement. Please arrive 10 minutes early to fill out paperwork. My biggest strength as a clinician is how I interact with patients. In my 13+ years of practice, I’ve developed a caring and supportive approach that allows patients to be at ease during sessions. I treat patients with kindness and respect and am truly interested their stories and feelings. An old fashioned treatment approach is for the psychiatrist to be neutral and not show emotion towards the patient. I believe this is outdated and can actually cause harm in some patients. In my office you will find a friendly, warm environment. As a general psychiatrist, I treat most psychiatric syndromes and I have a clinical interest in anxiety disorders, mood disorders and ADHD. I provide medication management by itself or in the course of psychotherapy. I also provide medication for patients who already have a therapist. In this situation, the therapist and I coordinate care to make sure we are in agreement and support of the treatment plan.

Dr. Anders was caring and empathetic. She really listened and sincerely wanted to help. She responded very quickly to a question I emailed to her after the appointment as well. I'm glad I found her and would recommend her.
