The clinic where difficult child was receiving treatment had a rule that if you were on medication, you were required to see one of their therapists monthly. difficult child's therapist didn't think he needed to be in therapy (I disagreed, but difficult child never really said much in therapy, and the therapist wasn't helpful to me or difficult child). So he recommended we find a psychiatrist who didn't require therapy, and gave us a couple of recommendations. I made an appointment with one of those psychiatrists, and it was a disaster. I went in with difficult child, which I think immediately ticked off the psychiatrist. When the psychiatrist asked why we were there, I started to explain, and the doctor cut me off and told me he wanted to hear it from difficult child. He asked difficult child why he was there, and difficult child told him he guessed so he could keep taking the medication. When asked why he was taking the medication, difficult child said he didn't really know. The psychiatrist told him he thought difficult child DID know. Then the psychiatrist told me to wait in the waiting room. He came back to get me after about five minutes and said difficult child wasn't being cooperative. Then the psychiatrist asked me if I knew what was going on. Even though I was tempted to tell him yes, but he wanted to hear it from difficult child, I held my tongue. I told him difficult child had been diagnosis with bipolar disorder. The psychiatrist asked me what made me think difficult child was bipolar. He was very belligerent the whole time. He acted like we were trying to get rx for something we could sell on the street (he never said anything like that, but he acted like we were trying to con him into giving difficult child a rx). I tried to tell him I didn't THINK difficult child was bipolar, his previous psychiatrist had diagnosis him bipolar. It went on like this for a few minutes, and finally difficult child said, "This is a waste of time." I told him I agreed, and we both walked out. The whole time, the psychiatrist was saying he agreed, too, that Lamictal was a very strong medication, and he couldn't rx it if difficult child couldn't answer some simple questions. We didn't hear anything else from this psychiatrist, so I assumed he at least had enough integrity not to file an insurance claim when he really hadn't done anything. WRONG. I just received a statement (the first one I've received) from his office that they did file an insurance claim back in July, but it hasn't been paid yet, which is strange, because the insurance company is pretty quick. I have't received anything from the insurance company at all. So my question is, should I complain to the psychiatrist, the insurance company, the board of insurance, or all of the above? in my humble opinion, this guy shouldn't have charged us at all, and he sure shouldn't have charged $225.00 for a psychiatric evaluation (that is what it says on the statement) that never took place. I would appreciate any input anyone has.
