The following list of medical professional comes from the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Florida http://www.cchrflorida.org/recommended-medical-list.html. Please check the website for updated information:
CCHR recommends getting a complete physical examination by a competent medical practitioner who does not prescribe psychiatric drugs. Very often when a person is experiencing emotional or behavioral problems, there is an underlying, undiagnosed medical condition causing the symptoms diagnosed as a psychiatric disorder. These conditions include, but are not limited to, allergies, infections, sleep disorders, toxins, nutritional deficiencies and hormone imbalances.
The list below is of Recommended Medical Websites that many people have found helpful in finding a competent, non-psychiatric, medical doctor. CCHR provides these websites as a public service on a ‘buyer-beware’ basis, you must use your own judgment in deciding which site will best serve your specific needs, and you do so at your own risk.
WARNING: No one should stop taking any psychiatric drug without the advice and assistance of a competent, non-psychiatric, medical doctor!
