I see that there's already a post looking for this and I never know what's the right thing to do in these cases--respond on the thread that's already been posted or post a similar thread of my own.  Moderators, feel free to move/delete/whatever.  I am also looking for a psychiatrist in the same general area, and I don't already have one because I just moved here from NV in Jan. 


I'm also looking for a psychiatrist who will treat me with respect and not try to compromise my attempt to breastfeed after birth.  I'm beyond just looking in my insurance network, I'm willing to pay out of pocket at this point--I just need help.  I've been looking through listings for days, and the ones that have reviews are bad, or I've also called several places where I didn't even get an answer, or just got a voicemail box.  Not good in this situation.   


ANY referrals/reviews are welcome, good or bad.  At least with a bad review I can know who to avoid.  Thank you.

My OB/GYN was Mark Wasserman. He's not a psychiatrist, but he managed my depression meds during my pregnancies and was really sensitive to issues of safety for the babies. He continued to manage my meds for a long time after I was pregnant. He's in Granite City, which isn't a garden spot, but you will get good care from him. He is at the Koch Center; the phone is (618) 452-3301.  Koch Center uses a sliding scale for people with insurance issues.


If you're looking for a psychistrist,  I'd try Mark Freeman or Mark Napier. They have an office in Edwardsville.
