About Anxiety Disorders
Everyone feels stressed, anxious, and nervous from time to time. But if you experience feelings of fear or anxiety that last for an extended period, you might want to seek help for an anxiety disorder. People who have an anxiety disorder often deal with intense fear and overwhelming feelings that prevent them from doing things they once enjoyed. The condition is also marked by excessive worry, panic, dread, shortness of breath, and insomnia. The compassionate physicians at Lawrence Family Practice Center can identify and treat many types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, and PTSD. We invite patients of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures to schedule an appointment in Lawrence, KS.
"Been a patient of Dr Amanda Miller there for 5 years. Other doctors and PA's are available if she is not. Dr Miller is very friendly and thorough. She explains any changes in care and why she is recommending them. Does not pressure if you don't want to make the change. Is willing to let you make a change in lifestyle to see if that will help before she prescribes medication."- J.C. / Google / Oct 19, 2023
