> I'd prefer a person with a research background (since researchers are usually most likely to know about nontraditional techniques), but that's not an absolute must.

Actually, I have seen more "nontraditional" and aggressive techniques come from the doctors of PB participants than I have been offered by some of the researchers I have seen. I think some researchers can become too absorbed in the details of their own projects and not know what's going on elsewhere. When you get a name, you might want to check out their material on Medline to see where they have been focusing their attention.

I liked Pat McGrath at Columbia. He's probably still giving consultations. However, he was not taking on new patients when I saw him 1 1/2 years ago. Gabitril was one of his first suggestions to me (bipolar depression). Jeffrey Apter sent a family member to see him. McGrath should be easy to find, but if you need the particulars, you can e-mail me.

I agree that Duke would be your best bet in NC, although UNC Chapel Hill is right around the corner.

Here's a name once recommended to me: Richard H. Weisler, M.D. He was a private researcher affiliated with Duke.
