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

Low cost options are available through mental health centers. Another option for you could be medical schools with outpatient clinics which train psychiatric residents. These doctors work with supervision, and you can get good help there. ...Read more
