HI.............I wanted, and clearly stated that I wanted a person who SPECIATIZES in treating bi polar illnesses and who ihas diplomate status. None of these Dr's meet that criterion.


Please refund my money.

Relist: Inaccurate answer.
Give me the name of a psychiatrist in the Provo area who SPECIALIZES ( at least 50% of their practice) is treating bi polar patients with medicine.

Please refund my money to my credit card as promised.
Expert:  Bill replied 5 years ago.
Sir- With all due respect: You did not specify in your questions 50% of practice. The list is actively practicing Board Certified Psychiatrists of The American Academy of Psychiatry and Neurology fully competent to treat anyone with BiPolar Illness who may or may not be in current practice.
