Psych consult scam???-HELP

Posted by Chloe on December 17, 2001, at 11:50:15

I am trying to get a psychopharm consult ASAP, as my life is spinning out of control.

I got referred to someone a Mclean hosp. and he can see me this Wednesday. BUT, he just changed job descriptions, yadda, yadda, at the hospital and can't accept insurance. SO, I have to pay $250 for a 45 minute appointment. YIKES.

I learned he is head of the department of anxiety and panic disorders at Mclean. My deal is really major depression and BPD, mood dyregulation. Is a psychopharmacologist able to treat any "disorder"? Or should I find one who specializes in BPD?

Am I crazy to shell out this kind of money? I must be desperate that I am even considering it! Do you think I can get insurance reimbursment? Is this just the going rate? And do you think this guy can help me, even if I don't have panic disorder???

thoughts, please?
