Re: psychopharm consultation - NYC or NC

In reply to psychopharm consultation - NYC or NC, posted by Elizabeth on December 15, 2001, at 12:04:05

I would look at Duke's (or UNC's) hospital web site and go to the page that shows the Department of Psychiatry's doctors. Usually these sites have a blurb on each doctor and you can see who the senior doctors or department heads are. Then you can make an appointment with one of those doctors.

I think that the advice from a top Duke doc would be as good as it gets. But if you really want to go out of state, and you want to go the orthomolecular route, you could call Dr. Robert Hedaya who is a clinician and a psychiatry professor at Georgetown University. . He has a website. You can start with and then go to his home page from there. I read his book a few years a go and he specializes in hard to treat cases. BUT, if you get the full battery of tests on your blood, saliva, hair, etc. it costs a few thousand dollars for the tests including the consultations.

According to his book, he usually does NOT replace traditional prescription antidepressants. His treatment only helps to augment your treatment.

> I'm interested in getting a consultation with a psychopharmacologist who's well-known, respected, etc., who might have ideas that could help me (I've tried most conventional AD and augmentations with limited success). 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.
> Does anyone know of any such people? I'm currently in NC and would be willing to travel within the state; I could also see someone in NYC or DC without much difficulty since I have relatives in both places.
