My psychiatrist's appointment did not go well again. There are a lot of problems that lead me to believe that I need to find a new one.
She tends to get very defensive if I disagree with something she says or tell her how my body reacts to medications I've been on for 6 years. She acts like she knows how my body works more than I do. In addition, she does not listen to my concerns or what I am saying. Her medication choices for me and the medication changes she's insisted I make really make me question her qualifications. I really don't like speaking negatively of others, but it really seems that I am not going to be able to work with this psychiatrist.
If you have a doctor whom you don't feel listens to your concerns or communicates with you about your conditions and medications, it may be time to find a new doctor. I found this article on-line the other night, and I thought it was very helpful and insightful, so I thought I'd share it with all of you. I hope you find it helpful as well.
