Customer Question
I need help in...

I need help in dealing with stress and anxiety.

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?

Along time, worrying about other people’s problems too much and coping with their problems. Also, I’m stressed out over debt and don’t know what to do

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

Sometimes I deal with depression a lot too

Hi, thank you for writing. My name is***** am sorry you are feeling stressed, depressed and anxious. Can you tell me if you are treated for these conditions? The most beneficial treatments involve a combo approach of medications and counseling, although one or the other may still prove helpful. Also, can you tell me more about your situation so I can best put together an answer for you?

I look forward to hearing back...

-Leah

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!!
