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.
