I am concerned about my son. His father had schizo

I am concerned about my son. His father had schizo affective disorder and committed suicide last year. Before this happened my son aged 28 was diagnosed with anxiety disorder. He is unable to hold down a job, disorganised and erratic. He is supposed to take medication but again he might take one day and not the next. He has also been quite nasty to me recently via constant text messages. I am worried there is a more deep rooted problem. However he refuses to get a formal diagnosis. His life is going nowhere and constantly blames me for bad advice even though i have always tried to advise on a practical level. Just very worried and problem been going on since he left university around 4 years ago.

I am looking for a doctor or therapist that can work with a father and son that have relationship problems. They work in business together and really need a third party to listen to their concerns about how they deal with each other on a daily basis. I am not sure if they need a therapist or a psychiatrist. The son is also dealing with alcoholism (denied to be a part of the problem) and the father thinks the son has anger issues (sure he is not provoking the negative behavior). This has been going on for a while, escalating, and they have both agreed to consultation. I am looking for a doctor that works in Anthem network.

My son was tackled by another child and hit his shin on the cement curb. His knee and leg down to his foot is very painful. There is no swelling but he can t straighten his leg and can not put any weight on it. Besides a sprain what else could it be? There is no redness or heat in the areas either. Thx!
