Second Opinion advice

I'm interested in getting a second opinion on diagnosis.
Do I tell my general doctor, the previous psychologist, or the new psychologist?
My insurance covered my first opinion, will it cover a second opinion?

Thanks!

Re: Second Opinion advice

Speak with whoever is prescribing for you. He/She would be happy to refer you to someone for a second opinion and insurance will GENERALLY cover this step as it is not an unusual one. When you speak with your doc, explain WHY you are looking for a second opinion. Chances are, if he has treated ADHD in the past, he's already heard it at least once.

Never forget. "Normal" is just a setting on the washing machine.
Do you really want to be a setting on the washing machine?
If you do, wouldn't you rather be the spin cycle?
