Customer Question
Hello, I just read the article...
Hello,
I just read the article about sociopathy. My daughter is married to a man who matches all the 13 questions in the article. He is a physician. His family history also has alcoholism. His mother and father both died early in life from this. My son-in-law has seen several (10) professinals in his life time. My daughter has not been told any of the results. He first saw a professinal in fifth grade due to anger and behavior. When he was in med school they told him if he didn't seek consuling that he would not be able to continue in med school. Every situation he incountered was seeking help due to behavior and would bear a result on his career. He feels as though his MD will save him. I have never seen anyone with the behavior he has before in my life time. He takes so responsiblity at all. My daughter carries the financial,office,children she handles it all. She tries to fix it all. There was another domestic occurance 2 days ago. I'm afraid for her. Kathy

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!!
