BACK TO AN ANSWER GIVEN TODAY. I DID TRY THE WEBSITE

I AM WRITING BACK TO AN ANSWER GIVEN TODAY. I DID TRY THE WEBSITE SUGGESTED, HOWEVER I AM IN OTTAWA ONTARIO AND COULD NOT FIND A REFERRAL FOR A PSYCHIATRIST HERE. I AM SURE MY PSYCHIATRIST WILL NOT GIVE ME A REFERRAL AS HE OFTEN AVOIDS HIS RESPONSIBILITIES BUT I AM SURE MY GP WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE ONE.
MANY THANKS AGAIN

Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.

Although your GP could probably make a good personal referral, here is another site you may want to try, specific to your area:

http://psychiatrists.psychologytoday.com/rms/cities/Ottawa-Psychiatrists.html

This site will list the psychiatrists available including contact and other information.

Also, there are a few more sites in case you do not find a doctor you are comfortable with:

http://directory.ottawadirect.info/Health_Body/Doctors_Medical_Specialists/Physicians/

http://doctorcheckup.org/doctors/specialty/14-Psychiatry?page=6

I also wanted to add a good article on what to look for when you search for a psychiatrist:

I hope this has helped you,
Kate
