Is there a rating system for psychiatrists? I am trying to find a very good one in the phoenix area and am running into a lot of issues doing so.

Is there a rating system for psychiatrists?  I am trying to find a very good one in the phoenix area and am running into a lot of issues doing so.

Beware of ratings: Some of the rating systems you can find on the internet have no real representative sample of opinions. Phoenix is a big city and is sure ot have good psychiatrists. If you dont have a regular medical doctor, find one and get some updated labs / physical, the physician might know of good psychiatrists. Calling the arizona psychiatric association may also provide leads.

Is there any drs. In the phoenix/scottsdale area, that are recommended for ehlers danlos? I'm finding it hard to find any for my son and me!  thanks!

While I can't offer: A specific recommendation, i'd suggest you have your pcp serve as "field general" to assure you receive the necessary subspecialty care for this constitutional disorder. Genetics referral may be a good 1st step. Many systems can be involved, based upon subtype & dz severity. Cardiovascular & musculoskeletal systems require attention. These and other services should be found at phoenix children's.

Yes: It is possible to undergo what it called ultra rapid detox. You are anesthetized and given intravenous reversal agents. It takes many hours and and you wake up feeling horrible. Sorry there is no magic bullet.

How would I go about finding a good doctor. I do have Medicaid. I live in Phoenix Arizona?

How would I go about finding a good doctor.  I do  have Medicaid. I live in Phoenix Arizona?

It's easy: Check at your nearest hospital for doctors on staff. Then check those with offices close to your home. Then check to see if the doctor accepts Medicaid patients. Unfortunately because of poor fees and excess paperwork many good doctors cannot take this insurance. Look for a family doctor or internal medicine specialist depending on your medical history.

How long does a doctor have to be practicing before he/she is considered good? Is a 7 year residency at st. Joesph medical center in phoenix, az good?

How long does a doctor have to be practicing before he/she is considered good? Is a 7 year residency at st. Joesph medical center in phoenix, az good?

A few years for most: In general sweet spot" for doctors is a few years out of training but not too many. However, doctors are like any other professionals -some are better than others. Seven years in residency should count for something, but not if it was a five year residency! to check the quality of the doctor look at your state licensing body. https://fortress.wa.gov/doh/providercredentialsearch/searchcriteria.asp.

had dust on finger in Phoenix, picked nose, nose bled. Balamuthia risk higher now? (southwest, dust, open wound)

had dust on finger in Phoenix, picked nose, nose bled. Balamuthia risk higher now? (southwest, dust, open wound)

No. Need symptoms.: You shouldn't suspect Balamuthia infection unless you have SYMPTOMS that corroborate it. Symptoms would include a nodular skin rash (granuloma) @the site of entry, headaches, & neurologic symptoms (Balamuthia often travels to the brain) like paralysis. People with HIV or immunosuppressed (for transplant) are more likely to develop neuro symptoms & not the rash. TT Infectious Disease doc on HT Prim

I live in Phoenix. Someone (not a doctor) told me that everyone here will get skin cancer eventually. Is that really true? I don't buy it.

I live in Phoenix. Someone (not a doctor) told me that everyone here will get skin cancer eventually. Is that really true? I don't buy it.

Not true: Not everyone will get skin cancer. Even some people who don't follow any of the rules don't get cancer. Just like some smokers never get cancer. However, to minimize your risk use sunscreen, wear a hat, avoid the sun during the peak hours of 10 am to 2 pm. Avoid tanning beds. Don't get sunburned to get the basis of a "good tan." Certainly some people are at greater risk than others.

Was i trimming the phoenix palm and got stuck several times by the nasty thorns. My wrist and i finger on opposite hand feel like artritic pain?

Was i trimming the phoenix palm and got stuck several times by the nasty thorns. My wrist and i finger on opposite hand feel like artritic pain?

See a doctor: A rheumatologist or infectious diseases expert would be a good place to start. There are several infectious conditions that can be introduced through plants, including a condition called sporotrichosis, and although these usually have initial lesions at the site of entry, they can travel to other areas of the body. Good luck.
