    You NAILED IT!!!! Yesterday he basically ASKED for a malpractice suit (long story) and I’ve since fired him. That entire group is a complete joke. UNFORTUNATELY, due to me putting my legal career on hold to get my son settled into this new/now old therapy group, I lost my good Insurance and had to make serious financial sacrifices as well – so my son currently has state Insurance which limits us to two groups- one that already failed him after a year and now this one 😭 After my surgery in 2 weeks, I’m getting resumes out to jump back in and start my career again. Once we have my good insurance again, we will be taking him to a private practice. In the meantime, his pediatrician can and will help if his anxiety gets to the point of NEEDING something prior to me having new insurance for him. We also might purchase a plan for him (my family has offered to pay for one until I have insurance through my career again),so we do have options. It felt SO good to fire him yesterday after what he has done 😁😁😁 Haven’t heard back yet lol ðŸĪ·

    Thank you for your response. That does actually make me feel a bit better about this doctor, and I totally understand why they want a patient to try and stick it out for two weeks. I guess what bothers me so much is that he gave us ONE med to choose from and completely dismissed my concerns about my 6 year old already being on a beta-blocker at night. I can see a doctor saying “You must give this a trial for at least two weeks” AFTER you’ve agreed upon a medication – but it was like “This is what I’m prescribing him and you need to remember that I went to medical school. Law and medical are two different fields. I can’t do your job and you can’t do mine. If you want treatment for your son, the only way I will agree to further appointments is if he takes this medication.”ðŸĪŠ I mean, if that’s the norm now, that’s just sad and we’re stuck. But it felt like misuse of his “power” to me. ðŸĪ·
