The "doctor ego" issue is one that a lot of us have to deal with.

Insurance companies put pressure on docs to practice in a certain way. If docs over-prescribe certain drugs or do too many tests, the companies can drop that doc from their list of preferred doctors. If that happens, the docs will lose some business. This situation can be even worse if you are in an HMO.

Keep trying!

> Thank you to everyone - I will keep at it, but go about it from a low key "this is what has helped" not "I am ADD, now diagnose me!" approach and if this doc won't or can't help I keep trying until I find one who can. I am sure about my history and symptoms and family history - but I don't want to be one of those "I know better than you do" patients.
