Customer Question
I would be so grateful...
I would be so grateful for any advice you can give me. My 22 yr,old Grandson is a lovely young man,never been in any trouble and we have never seen him any different than his normal quiet self.Hes been treated for depression for a couple of years by his GP. His Parents have been very worried about his behavior and have asked his Gp several times for a referal to a psychiatrist and at one time it was agreed that he would be admitted, but he would not agree to this and was obviosly not ill enough to be sectioned thankfully, so nothing came of it. Today his Parents have again tried to get him referred but today its a different story, now the GP says he doesn't have depression after being on antidepressents for years, he has a personality disorder and theres no cure for it, so shes arranging cognative treatment,he has to sign on and if he hasn't got a job in 6 months shes going to arrange a full medical for him. Mdically hes A1, mentally hes not. He hasn't worked for about 18months, Help

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!!
