I am doing my Neurology rotations and we were considering Psychiatry consult for a patient. Our attending these days is a distinguished MD PhD Neurologist. This is what he had to say: We should probably wait and have the pt f/u as outpatient with a Psychiatrist. I have seen that the Psychiatry service at our hospital prefers doing a "biological" work up with the patients instead of having the time to talk to them. Any perspectives, insights or comments from my learned fellows are welcome? P.S.- Pt came in with a Headache associated with an emotional lability and everything "neurologic" was ruled out.
