message MD twice... and no call back in one week. What would you call that?
I'd call it less than acceptable. If a doctor cannot be bothered getting back to you and you have spoken to a person at least twice; get another Doctor. Mental health doesn't really wait until it is convenient for someone to get back to you.
My GP will phone me at the end of a work day if has received any letters or information that I'd like to know about. Not often, but it's really nice having a Doctor who thinks about his/her patients and phones even if to just to lessen a few days anxiety.
Good luck, Steve
I don't think your over reacting at all. Mental health and the medications that go with it are very specific to the individual that your doctor should definitely be keeping in touch with you. I have had this problem in the past and luckily now after changing doctor I'm in a much better place. If it isn't possible for you to change your doctor straight away are you linked in with any other services you could use for advice eg a mental health nurse, psychiatrist etc
New doctor! That's absolutely unacceptable for ANY doctor. What if you were in a crisis?
I read you were looking ~ good for you, girlie!! If you need help look for a mental health or social services agency. They can often put you in touch with a quality doctor, and sometimes low-cost services, if you need.
Best of luck to you, Eeeeker! WCV
