Hello doctor,

I am experiencing stress at the work place which causes me to have multiple panic attacks. I have file 3 EEO's, and gotten zero results, my previous psychiatrist just medicated me by tripling my dosage verses listening to me, I requested a diagnosis letter from her for my employer and she refused, I need some one who cares and can genuinely help me.

Mind body medicine integration is a great way to combat burnout. I need to know details of what exactly you are going through to be able to judge the exact strategies which would help you out in your situation.
