> I have recently been looking for a good Doctor after years of inferior treatment. I have found that the better doctors are not only more expensive (that is to be expected) but they are also unwilling to take insurance. I'm wondering why this is so. Is it just that they don't want to deal with the extra paper work?Or is there some more compelling reason? It seems a shame that decent psychiatric treatment should be accessible only to those who have the money.

Please don't think that just because they don't take insurance they are "better" Dr's. I tried paying "out of my pocket" to a Dr 6 months ago. Well $1300 dollars later, I'm broke and NOT feeling any better. It was a real disappointment. I've tried my HMO and out of network. The only thing my Dr did for me was drain my savings. That was a risk I was willing to take to get & feel better, and it didn't pay off. People tell me that you just have to find the right Dr that you like and that will workwith you. I don't have the money to "try" different Dr's until I find the one I "like".

Wouln't it be great if the Dr didn't charge you until he or she actually HELPED you??
( I know that's not right, but at least they would try just a little harder ). I know medicine is just a science, but all I'm trying to do is get my life back.
