Treating Total Patient

By uclahealth

Treating Total PatientDr. Jason Lerner was one of the few doctors who believed me when I said Kourtney was having absence seizures,” says Kathy Daigle, mother to 14-year-old Kourtney Daigle. Also pictured is Kourtney’s father, Ken Daigle. Kathy continues, “He’s been treating Kourtney since she was 3. He’s an amazing doctor and he takes a really holistic approach to treatment. He found the right medications to control her epilepsy, but more than that, he pulled in a psychiatrist when she was 9 for her anxiety and a nutritionist to give us information about the ketogenic diet. He really treats the total patient.”
