Customer Question
I have alwayas been...

I have alwayas been an anxious person but now that i am older it has become worse i have frequent panic attacks, which make me have cold sweats, short of breath. I haven't been able to get any sleep my m8nd is always racing. Im always nervous. Its getting to the point to were it is effecting my career and my life

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

I have been dealing with this for like 5 years ive noticed tgat the smallest things can trigger it. Like going out to the store drivibg or being in a social crowd. My mom has been trying to get me to see someone for a long time but i am shy and embarrassed about it. Talking online with someone just seemed better

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

Sometimes i feel like i dont belong on this world sometimes things just feel unreal to me i dont know why.

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!!
