Sorry, I had been talking to Dr. Wilfong. I am in a custody "battle" and was asking about having someone look through about a year's worth of text messages and emails between my ex and me. I feel that they are telling with regard to my ex being very controlling and totally uncooperative. In addition I believe that the emails show that she feels that this battle is about her rather than about what's best for my daughter. (example: I cannot take my daughter to the doctor when she is ill unless the appt is convenient for my ex to go along or my daughtergets a lot of tummy aches when at my ex's house and I want her to see a child psychologist. But the ex sayhs if I take my daughter without her permission, she will ask the courts to reduce my visitation) I am trying to get residential custody changed to me from her, but the ex is a great liar and most people beliee what she says. I was curious if someone could look over the emails and be able to see her real peronality so I could have a reason to get the courts to request that we both get evaluated. I don't know if this will work, or how to start.

I will opt out and let you continue your conversation with Dr. Wilfong. I'll let him know that you have a question waiting for him. Good luck. Tamara

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
