Is this true with Taiwan psychologists though? Do they do that here in dealing with depression? The cognitive behavioral approach does more than emphasize on emotional context.
Now you are twisting my words. Doctors and medication are needed, but how much are they needed? Is it misleading to recommend an alternative treatment? I do not believe I have placed negative light on doctors and medication in order to champion an alternative treatment.
I've said pretty much all I want to say regarding this at this point. Especially being I am in the middle of dealing with the department of health. I am not going to mention which hospitals, because I firmly believe that any hospital you go to would do the exact same thing. I went to hospitals of all sizes and standards and encountered the same result. And I believe that if I went to all the other hospitals in Taipei I would find the same result. This is of course an assumption, but we all know how things work here. Is it professional and right in Taiwan for a doctor with no psychiatry background to prescribe psychological drugs? It is legal, but I have to wonder why.
How does this work in the US, the same? I was under the impression that in the US an MD must have a written note or something from a psychiatrist in order to make the prescription, maybe I am wrong.
Let's just say it's an exercise in futility. It's been over two months of waiting, pushing, waiting, asking, etc. and I am still waiting for their initial response.
