> Thanks Daisy. I thought it might mean primary physician, and that made NO sense. It means prescribing physician, which makes a whole lot more sense. Pdoc is much better than pp ... probably ...well, depending on the day...

Actually, it's not 'prescribing physician' but 'psychiatric doctor'. As one could be receiving his/her prescriptions for psychiatric medications from their general practitioner (GP), but that wouldn't make the GP their pdoc.

Tho', when I told my pdoc that we referred to psychiatrists on the board as 'pdocs', he found it amusing, and followed with, "I thought a 'pdoc' was a urologist?" He has a goofy sense of humor at times. :-)
