In 2008 I started seeing a psychologist for chronic, mild depression (dysthymia). While there this became major recurrent depression and anxiety. I have records showing that the dr never adjusted my meds as my condition worsened, keeping me on minimal doses of Wellbutrin, then Celexa. She never referred me to cognitive behavior therapy, and she did not refer me to another counselor. She basically saw me for 10 minutes or less, and only refilled prescriptions and asked how I was feeling in the general sense. I didn’t realize this until I saw my new dr, and I saw the records for a disability claim. My condition got worse, as did my quality of life and ability to function properly. Her notes back all of this up. Is there a potential claim there if I didn’t commit or attempt suicide?
