> I have been down the columbia route ... saw Dr. Fredrick Quikten and Dr. Alexander Glassman. Both very expensive ..... and alot of stuff we spoke of was simply here in psycho-babble. I found Dr. Glassman to be a little more up to date, willing to experiment.

Thank you. I'm not looking to learn things I don't already know (although I'll be happy if I do). What I need is a doctor who's willing to make some recommendations that people down here in NC (i.e., the middle of nowhere) wouldn't be willing to try just based on my word. I need recommendations from someone who the doctors down here will pay attention to. It's a one-time thing so cost isn't a big deal (within reason of course).

I lived in Boston for seven years or so, and I met some very well-known psychiatrists while I was there. There are three medical schools in the area, and the clinical and research tradition in psychiatry is unmatched -- psychopharmacology on the one hand, and psychoanalysis on the other. (I was lucky enough to have a psychiatrist who was proficient in both fields, and I saw him for four years or so.) It's also a wonderful place to live, in general. Unfortunately, I'm not in that situation anymore. I could go there to visit friends since I have several standing invitations, but getting there would be more difficult than getting to DC or NY would be. (I could stay with my sister in New York or my cousin in DC.)
