I would like to ask everyone’s opinion, as a psychiatrist, should he said or done anything mentioned below:
The doctor reduced the dosage of medication upon the patient’s father’s request, in order for him to get up early to work, however, his illness was not appropriately treated.
The psychiatrist told our family that the patient’s condition is psychosis, however, as the patient’s father was controlling and manipulative, under such conditions, the illness would only get worse, as it forms a great pressure towards the patients. I would like to ask that, as a psychiatrist, should he made such a comment?
The doctor expressed that this is the patient’s family issues, as a doctor, he does not have the obligation to deal with it, considering the patient’s father is unwilling to change, the problems created still exists, I would like to ask, as a psychiatrist, is there anything he could have done for the patient that is correct and beneficial to the patient?
Dr. Ting is very thoughtful and considerate. With his help I've put my life into perspective thereby reducing mental stress allowing me once again to enjoy living. His method is to not only alleviate symptomatic ailments which can be problematic but treat the entire psychological makeup which will prevent future ailments. His demeanor is light-hearted, stern when the situation calls for it but non threatening. After a couple of visits it's like being treated by a good friend who has your interests at heart, some one you can trust. Thanks,
