Re: Question for all re: med mgmt appts.
I think this varies from one pdoc to another. My old pdoc only saw me for 15 minutes, but my current pdoc sees me for 25-30 minutes. I also think the frequency by which you see a pdoc varies. My old pdoc always wanted to see me every 3 months despite the fact that I was struggling with rapid cycling and mania while my new pdoc prefers to see me every 2-3 weeks. As far as my tdoc is concerned, I used to see him every 2 weeks until I was diagnosed with PTSD last month. Ever since then, he requested that I see him once a week or twice a week if needed for 55 minutes since I have alot of issues to work on.
