> 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.

You have a point. The researcher I had in mind, mainly, was of course Dr. Bodkin at McLean, with whom I was very impressed. He seems to know about every novel/unconventional treatment for depression, and he keeps up to date. (I also hit it off well with him for whatever reason, and he treated me very respectfully; these days, I'm feeling like even the minimal respect that I would expect from any person is something I can no longer take for granted!) I've generally felt like I was able to connect better to the researchers I've met than to the average clinician. However, these researchers have all been Harvard folks -- I'm finding that the "culture" at different academic medical centers can vary widely. The thing I *don't* like about a lot of non-researcher clinicians is that they're often so conservative, they don't want to try *anything* unconventional. Dr. Bodkin and other Harvard researchers I've met have been compassionate as well as knowledgeable -- they're willing to try whatever it takes to get you better.

Thanks for your recommendations. I'm leaning more and more towards seeing somebody at Columbia.
