This raises a real good point- just how DO you distinguish between good and bad psy-docs? I am starting to realize that I have neither the inclination nor the wherewithal to take the do-it-yourself armchair-neurology course (indeed, the chief problems that have led me to seek help are problems with memory, concentration, and cognition; also, I am supposed to be doing Ph.D level work [in an unrelated field] and not spending my time musing about the effects of blocking the 5HT2A receptor, etc.). The reason we have a professional division of labour in our societies- and, a fortiori, the reason doctors take home enough money to choke a horse- is so that the layman doesn't HAVE to worry about acquiring expertise in areas which aren't his job. Rather, this befalls the professional, and there are (or are supposed to be) mechanisms for weeding out the incompetent practitioner (so that, once again, I DON'T have to take it upon myself to make that judgement call). I think this situation suxxx- comments?
