I just cant concentrate on things and my regular doctor

Customer Question
I just cant concentrate...

I just cant concentrate on things and my regular doctor asked me to consult a psychiatrist

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I stopped going to school because of not concentrating. i was doing good back in the days. idk whats going on i lost my license . i use to drive to make money

Doctor's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Mental Health Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Ok but i dont have no insurence so how do we do this ? and are you going to write me prescription on something? do i need ?

ok then are you doctor in New york ?
or how can i come see you ? or what should i take that can help.
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

No I am not based in New York and experts do not see clients from this website. A lack of concentration can be due to anxiety, stress, depression, or another organic disorder so this is why you need to be evaluated by a psychiatrist or psychologist face to face. I cannot evaluate you over the internet.

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!!

Janet VPhoenix, AZ
