We are looking for a new doctor. This would be our third one. The first one we NEVER saw.... we only saw the NP the entire 2 years we were going there. Current doc and office staff made a rather BIG mistake when giving us a refill Rx for my son's focalin.

In my previous experience the doctor's assistants/staff are not qualified (imho) to relay the information necessary, unless they are a medical professional. The doctor's staff member

Speak to doctor - their assistants can pass on msgs or get back to you with info

Thanks. A couple of those I already had in mind. I also want to know if they have a nurse on hand for questions or what not...just like my pediatricians office. My current one I have to write up a letter and fax it to him. I have no email and I truly do not trust regular staff after what just happened.

When we looked for a new Psychiatrist

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
