Will a psych doc see me just for dx?
I'm on SSDI for physical & mental illness. I'm going through a review and having to fight to keep my disability. I haven't seen a therapist in a years, so I don't have a "current" diagnosis. I get my meds from GP and can't afford weekly/monthly appts with a psych doc. So my question is: Do psych docs ever do just an evaluation and/or diagnosis? Is that something I can call and ask for? Or will they only see me for treatment? Idk if this is common or weird, lol.

Yes a Psychiatrist will evaluate you. It has to be a face to face consultation. Look for one in your area
