Suggest Treatment For Stress And Depression

Dear Dr Bienenfeld, I am a 62 year old white female that recently located from northern VA to the rural area of Van Buren County, AR. For the last 3 1/2 years, I have been on medication for adult ADHD that has truly transformed my life. It was at the urging of my family that I originally sought help for symptoms that I have had since childhood. I have been very stable on: Generic Concerta (methylphenidate) 54 mg ER: one each AM as well as generic Adderall 20mg each afternoon as needed. I am in need of a psychiatrist in the Van Buren county of Arkansas who would be wiling to renew the above medications. I have no allergies whatsoever. I do take generic Lipitor for a slightly high cholesterol and even though my diet is excellent and I exercise regularly, it is still necessary to have a bit of help with medication. I have no history of heart problems or problems with blood pressure and my family history is negative for that as well. I am retired and enjoying the Ozarks in close proximity to my relatives. Last week a friend and I traveled 3 hours to see a psychiatrist whose receptionist assured me should be no problem in renewing my medicines. We actually felt as if we had entered the Twilight Zone, lol. The psychiatrist insisted on seeing us both. She went into great detail regarding her medical crisis of the past year. She gave us a tour of her facility and showed us a chair that she helped invent for depression. We were shown the many gifts bestowed on her by her patients as well as pictures of her with celebrities as proof that she has been a psychiatrist to the stars in past years. After about 1 1/2 hours, she revealed that I would need to see a psychiatrist closer to my home. She offered to provide names of specialists close to me but her receptionist still has no such messages for me. She does seem like a lovely lady but it did come across as more than a bit unprofessional. Thank you in advance for helping me find a solution to my situation. Warmest regards, Sandy Umstott Anesthetist, Retired
