Answer: if you are referred by your family doctor and the child's permanent address is in Southwest Nova Scotia, I can. I will not see anyone who does not permanently live in Southwest Nova Scotia due to the demand for my services.
Answer No, I cannot. That's practicing medicine and I only have a license to practice medicine in Nova Scotia. Besides, that's probably not the best way to approach a child psychiatric problem for second opinion. I think second opinions can be very valuable but probably having someone in your own culture and area do it is going to be much more worthwhile. However, if you live in Southwest Nova Scotia, contact your family doctor and I'd be glad to see the patient.
Answer This depends on what country you live in and whether you live in a rural or urban area. The best place to start is usually a family doctor or a friend or neighbor who may have a child with similar problems. If those don't pan out, I think the next thing is to call the closest University that has a child psychiatry department and they may know someone closer to you or themselves that could do an assessment. In rural areas, this can be awfully difficult. It usually means going on a big car trip. It also requires a lot of persistence. In my experience, usually it takes 2-3 assessments to finally get things sorted out. I would not be discouraged if you see someone first who doesn't sound like they know what they're doing. I would keep persisting until you're sure because getting a proper diagnosis is the first and most important thing.
Journals - Most of the recent information for the pamphlets comes from MEDLINE searches and my review of important journals in the field. To comply with the December 1997 Canadian Medical Association Web Site guidelines, these were referenced starting in January of 1998.
Clinical experience - All of the case histories, examples, and descriptions are from my personal experience. The case histories are a compilation of many patients, not a description of any one person.
