Do you offer assistance finding a local doctor to help with perimenopause and menopausal symptoms, one that wouldn't just prescribe anti-depressants, but really understands the issues? I'm desperate.

Hi jmaclean

Thanks for your post!

We cannot recommend specific doctors to our readers as we cannot provide the kind of background checks and references/reviews that would be needed in order to provide that kind of service.

Do you have some kind of health plan that offers a list of doctors in your network? If so, you need to go through the list and call the offices. Explain what you are looking for and the kind of doctor you need for your unique needs. It may take some time but this may be what you need to do.

Also, as your primary care physician for a referral (or are you seeing her now and want to get someone else?). Another idea is to call the hospitals near you (or go on their websites) and read the biographies of their doctors, their education and areas of specialization. You can also "interview" a few doctors to see if they fit your needs.

I hope this help and if you need more guidance or just need to talk, please let us know. We're here to help you and put you on the path to better health!
