However, when mobility is limited due to injury, pain or in the aftermath of surgery the services provided by our 11570 physiacist Dr. Robert Lanter, OD can help the patient return to full mobility without any accompanying pain. A physiacist (also known as a psysiatrist) specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation, they differ from physical therapists in that the psychiacist is a medical doctor who diagnoses what is the matter with the patient and then prescribes the correct therapy and manages the therapy process, while the physical therapist is often charged with carrying out the prescribes therapy.
