I'm having major issues with daughter's doctor and trying to get her to see the correct people. Still working on getting her into Occupational Therapist (OT) and going back and forth with the doctor (but that's another issue). The closest place to see a neuropsychologist is an hour away. While we do need to do this, I need a close doctor that we can contact if there is a crisis, or at least for regular appts. When I spoke with the asst at the regular doctor I told them I just needed a referral to somebody who could give medicine. The asst said that if she saw a psychologist (is that a therapist??) then that person could call her regular doctor and get the medicine called in by them. I'm not sure how comfortable I am with this, but I have limited resources of doctors available due to the area. Can anybody give me some insight into the differences of the two kinds of docs? I'm dealing with one thing at a time with her, and I need to find somebody very soon who can deal with her issues now. I don't want to drag her to a million docs to find the right person to treat her.
