What you could try to do is send the pdoc an e-mail with the things you INTEND to have discussed at your appoinment, including your current state of mind, medication options and other related issues. If he has an outline of your issues and discussion items in advance of the appointment, you can go in and go through the contents of the e-mail, item by item with him. I have actually sent my pdoc e-mails between appointments and in advance of appointments so he knows what to focus on at my appointment. And, I would suggest that you call his office to verify the length of your appointment (how much time you are REALLY entitled to, not how much time the guy is willing to spend). It is incomprehensible that a pdoc would spend only 10 minutes with a patient. Sounds like you are being ripped off. If the secretary tells you that your appointment is 15 minutes, then when you book your next appointment book two consecutive appointments back to back to ensure you have sufficient time and attention to discuss your issues.

Good luck, Link. My thoughts are with you. It can't be easy having to deal with an indifferent doctor, on top of everything else you are going through.
