Customer Question
My son is 23 years...
My son is 23 years old and suffers from depression. He has been on Wellbutrin for about a year and he doesn't feel it is working anymore. About 2 months ago he was put on adderal because he has a hard time focusing and finishing things which in turn gets him frustrated. I think the adderal has helped, but I would like him to get an evaluation as has been described. Is there anyone inHawaii on the island of Oahu that you could recommend?

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 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!!
