    I am desperately looking for a competent Psychiatrist, who accepts insurance, in either Southern Maryland, Annapolis, DC, or Northern Virginia. Any further away and I couldn't make the trip. I was just denied on my first filing for disability, and I have a lawyer on my case. The SSA doc that did my psych. eval. was a major jerk. He spent 55 min. testing me, and only 30 min. talking to me. He never even asked about my present state of mind. I want to find a doc to do an independent evaluation on me. My present Psychiatrist won't do it, because she doesn't want to "get involved in a lot of paperwork." Plus, she doesn't accept insurance - a real pain since I have to do the filing then. I also want someone who has at least half a brain when it comes to fibro.

    Thanks,
    Barbara
