man, i am going to set a personal record for posting today...
i think it depends poser.
i have seen so many psychs over the past 2 years. i'm guessing close to 10. developed a positive relationship with 2.
a few of those docs were absolutely terrible. a couple ok, and 2 were outstanding and very caring and 'old school.' they still did psychotherapy as well as prescribe and returned calls immediately. one closed her office and the other was just too expensive unfortunately. oh yeah, even the doc that gave me ect was very caring and kind. ironic.
i read somewhere that the average psych patient goes thru 6 pdocs until finding one that fits the bill.
not sure your history poser or financial situation, and i am very sorry you are frustrated and not feeling well.
is it possible for you to search for a new pdoc?
