I was recently misdiagnosed at BHC by one of the temp. psychiatrists. I had a horrible visit and requested a second opinion, only to get a nurse practitioner who would not go against the psychiatrists initial diagnosis due to her lack of credentials. So I'm wondering what psychiatrists here in town are the best ones to go to. Thank you for your input and only serious answers please =)

none of them are any good. i have bipolar, depression, anxiety, depression, you name it, i have it. you must deal with it on your own without medication. find hobbies and friends that will accept you.

I have nothing to deal with on my own simply because I have nothing mentally wrong with me. My future career depends on correcting this misdiagnosis. So please, I would really appreciate serious answers.

dr. fontaine is the lead dog in town and he is a complete jack@ss. Like noted above they are all crappy in town, but fontaine is borderline negligent in his care and methods of treatment. i'd go as far as to say he inflicts emotional distress on the patient. Unless you laugh at his retared jokes and dont mind him commenting on the breast size of his social workers at omc.

Very sad and mildly disturbing information. Thank you for an intelligent and knowledgeable answer. Maybe I should look in Springfield.

I was unfortunate enough to have to live thru his "hospitality" at the stress unit and he made similar comments about staff. He's a turd.
Maybe this will help

Dr Stephen Dollins in Mtn Home is great. He is a bit expensive, I think the initial visit is around $200 and then follow up visits decrease in price.
Personally, it has been my experience that the doctors at BHC are not good at all. They treat everyone like they are pill seekers but when you tell them you don't want meds you only want info on how to deal with your condition they only want to throw meds at you. I have chronic anxiety and they told me it was like having high blood pressure. I need medication for the rest of my life. I did my own research on the internet and have been coping just fine for years without their list of meds I supposedly need for life. I have to wonder if the fact that I have good insurance that was paying them over $100 per 15 minute visit every 3 months had anything to do with my need for medication.
If it means saving your career, not to mention increased insurance premiums, I would definitely go to Dr Dollins or find someone in Springfield. Good luck to you.

You gotta give Doc a little credit. The Social worker he was talking about was some gal they all said looked like Barbie that had a big set of fake ones that she showed off to the whole staff and patients of OMC. I think she left as she was getting wrote up for her "openness" (ie, tits hanging out, thongs exposed, etc.) Her hubby was working there too and actually was glad to see her go as people would ask him about it all the time.
Give doc a break. If someone is gonna purposely flaunt her breasts for everybody to see then why should he have commented? Needy chicks always want attention.

Do you know who the staff person was? There are a couple really nice looking people over there?
