Good Psychiatrist in Brussels area?

Question

Hi, does anyone know or can recommend a good Psychiatrist based in the Brussels area?

I'm looking for one who knows about Effexor and isn't a pill pusher (not a salesman for the pharmaceutical industry). I've tried the CHS but they have limited experience so I need a good reliable Psychiatrist who speaks english (doesn't have to be perfect skills but good enough to understand what help I need).

Any help or advice welcome... either for Psychiatrists or help groups...

thanks

Elizabeth

If CHS cannot help, I suggest you consult your GP.

Any psychiatrist should know Effexor because it has been on the market for over 15 years. Just beware of the drawbacks of interpreting a doctor who is willing to prescribe what you ask for as being a better psychiatrist and not a pill pusher.

I would agree with YTTAP, you should ask your GP.

Or else, try the psychiatric departments at any one of the large university hospitals in Brussels, for example;

Any serious medical professional (especially at the university hospitals) in Belgium is going to speak English. To get anywhere in the medical profession beyond being a generalist or junior doctor, you need to have a good command of English, as most of the research journals, medical texts and medical conferences are in English.

Do not be so sure of all specialists speak English. I have opposite experience. They avoid speaking all together and they do not explain anything. Make sure the doctor you will go speaks English properly.
