Yes in a way.I had to find a new GP since old one left practice.One new GP I went to to continue IBS meds put down depression on the form and nothing else. Ignorant MD. Insurance wouldn't pay for mental health at normal rates. This is a word to the wise. Look at the sheet the MD hands you upon exit. Make sure it doesn't include a mental health code.Found someone else.
