so I went to this one Dr for my ADHD n he asked me all these ridiculous questions like, how do u know u have ADHD, do u have proof u have ADHD, when we're u diagnosed, n he also told me that he didn't want to help me cuz it didn't seem ""right"" he also said that I probably don't even have enough insurance (I'm fully covered) then he started asking me about how much money I had, of course I didn't tell him. he did eventually give in but made me wait a week n a half because he made it so I could only get it if one of my insurances went through.

    I’m sorry that happened. Just remember that you know your mind best. Keep advocating for yourself! I hope it all works out. 💕

    This is very odd imo, either this doctor doesn’t really know what they’re looking for (hence pressing for a previous diagnosis, this might not be their typical specialty) or they’re not invested in helping their patients and just want to make sure their cash flow is steady. If you build a good relationship and get it straightened out then that’s wonderful, but if this doctor rubs you the wrong way or you feel like they dismiss you all the time, there’s nothing wrong with going to someone else. You deserve a quality of care from someone who is invested in you.

      I agree BUT then again what does his specialty have to do with how much money I have??? Also he can clearly look in my charts to see everything I've been diagnosed with. So it doesn't make any sense to me.

        if he’s not a psychiatrist, chances are he only has limited knowledge of mental health, and that does not by any means mean that he’s a bad doctor or that he’s not qualified, BUT doctors have specialties so that they can be experts and give people the best quality of care (I know lots of doctors that say they talk to specialists when they don’t know enough about something, and I’ve also had experiences of general or family medicine doctors trying to help me with mental health concerns, and they straight up admitted to me that they didn’t know enough to best treat me) the reason I bring up the money questions is bc it seems strange that he was pressing you so much about that??? A good doctor is out to help people firstly, and the financial aspect (should) come second so that just seemed strange to me, but you were obviously there to sus out his tone and everything
