Wonderfull consultation with a great psyh. Dr. Recently. Consult.... On a normal basis with a psych dr. Is a 15-minute appointment just too short?

15 minute appts.: Dr. Fowler provided helpful info on the effects of managed care on psychiatry appointments.

Some support can be provided, but most of the time goes for checking side effects and writing prescriptions. ...Read more

This question makes me smile. I am the shortest in my family. There is no wishing more growth. There is no appropriate medication treatment to make you grow taller.

No: I am not aware of any medical studies which show long term height loss resulting from lifting weights.
