Customer Question
I am looking for...

I am looking for a new psychiatrist and any programs for my daughter. She is 23 and bipolar.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

She has a doctor now but she doesn't like him. She takes Adderall for ADHD, Effexor, Klonopin, and I think there is one other one. She took Latuda for a while but we had to stop it, she was having facial ticks from it.

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

I also have Depression, Anxiety, ADD, Aspergers, and PSTD. I am doing well. My daughter would not be mature or have the skills to be on her own right now. I think she has that failure to launch.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

She started out well in college and then kept getting worse until she wasn't able to go to school at all. That was about 2014. I have been to different places looking for help and have always been told she doesn't fit our program. She currently has a therapist.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I hope I can help. To begin, where do you reside? This will help me find a possible new psychiatrist and/or treatment program for your daughter.

Also, her therapist hasn't been able to provide any people to assist?

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!!
