For 3 years after moving from the Detroit area to near Tulsa, I flew to Detroit every 6-9
months to have an appointment with my old Psychiatrist. I had been in "therapy" with
her for 16 years, was finally on a workable mixture of Celexa and Adderall, did not
want psychotherapy (12 years of Psychoanalysis, 4-7 days per week was enough), yet
realized that a new Psychiatrist might want to attempt his own treatment. I wrote a
letter to a local Psychiatrist, asking for his help as a Consultant, in finding a new
Psychiatrist who would meet my needs. {Eureka! A new specialty. A Mental Health
Transitional Consultant ; >)} I hadn't yet heard from him when I located a new
Internist, and showed her my letter. She recommended a local Psychiatrist who has
met my needs quite effectively, and even told me two sentences about herself, which
is more than I learned about the other one in 25 years. I have a better relationship
with the new one then I did in all of that time with the former one, who didn't even
bother answering my email when I told her of my decision. This may be a good
strategy for someone who is moving, and requires only prescriptions, someone to talk
to, and someone who will look at references brought to them, and give advice, which
I may or may not follow.
