Are the best medical schools in the states? Are medical schools in india, china, japan, england/uk, iraq, israel, etc., reputable? Would you attend?
Best is relative.: Good medical schools and great doctors in every country. Generalizing possible, but misleading. Most medical education takes place during internship / residency. Best education is one that prepares you for practice in the society and culture you live in. Japanese schools are great for japanese physicians and likewise for the other countries. ...Read more

At that point, ivf with sperm recovery from the testicle (tesa) may be the better choice. ...Read more

In : In the state of florida, the marchman act addresses getting help for individuals with serious problems with substance abuse, who are not open to treatment. This law can help families through the courts to get loved ones into court ordered and court monitored "intervention assessment stabilization, or detoxification, and long-term treatment". A family member can petition the court . Under the baker act, which is specific for psychiatric conditions, even if he has known psychiatric diagnoses, his doctor can only detain him against his will for a brief period unless there is court intervention and he is deemed to be at imminent risk to self or others. I suggest you obtain legal advice. Additionally, do not remain in the home iwith your spouse if you are afraid that you or your son are in danger. You can ask the police who intervened for local contact information regarding domestic violence advocacy. If is important that a safety plan be developed. "knights of kindness" lists a number of florida resources that may be beneficial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Having access to mental healthcare might avoid certain situations, but such access does not guarantee that it would mitigate every tragic situation. Unfortunately there is no simple solution to these complex situations. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Need new psychiatrist. Every one I call isn't accepting new patients or has weird office policies. Overwhelmed and frustrated. How do people do this?
Can understand: your frustration. Because you have both bipolar disorder and anxiety - a psychiatrist really is the best level of care. Not sure what is meant by weird office policies. But, there are many areas where there aren't sufficient number of psychiatrists. If the psychiatrist's office policies don't actually prohibit you from care from them - you may need to be flexible. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would a doctor/psychiatrist be accepting if a client left all treatment with everyone after an offer of an inpatient stay to stabilise symptoms pls ?
Not unusual: Without knowing specifics of the case, it is not unusual for a patient/client requiring a higher level of care, necessitating an inpatient stay, to discontinue outpatient care. That being said, if the outpatient care prior to admission was appropriate, the patient/client would likely return to those services as part of their discharge plan. This is of course, in the context of mental health. ...Read more

Here are some ideas: 1. Most people want doctors on their insurance, so if you have a list to work from, that might be a good start. 2.

Word of mouth from family or friend. 4. Search doctor websites online. Good luck. ...Read more

Please be aware that now a days most psychiatrists primarily do medication management. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
