Customer Question
I want to know...

I want to know about surgical procedures to cure mental illness

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

The symptoms are emotional pain and depression

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

I have been feeling like this for decades and have taken psychiatric help

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

That is it I guess
