Finding A New Doctor - Panic!!

Why in God's name would a website that is supposed to help you find a therapist for OCD show you the picture of the doctor? Do I sound crazy for saying this?  Is it just me?  I don't want to see a picture of the doctor I am going to see. It causes me to pre judge them based on appearances!  Too young, no, too old, no, too pretty, no, too normal, no, to crazy looking, no....No one looks right!  I think this is the craziest thing ever!  You may be laughing, you may be agreeing, you may think I am dumb, but I don't want to see their picture!  I will see them when I get to the office and meet them in person. No pictures please!!

So now I will try to find another website or service with no pictures. Just recommendations. Maybe the world out there wants to see who their doctor might be before they get there, but not me!


  1. I had to laugh at this because I had never thought about it, but I see your point! Why do we need to see their picture at this point?

    Have you tried contacting local universities with medical centers? Sometimes they are good places to find specialists.

    1. I am still looking today. I want someone who can be a therapist and dispense meds. I hate having to see separate people! ♥

  2. I smiled throughout this post - I completely understand what you're saying! I'd rather show up and be surprised at who they are. If I see a photo of them, I assume who they are!

    Good luck on your search!

  3. I know what you mean, however, I do NOT like going too old doctors. I have had the experience for the most part that they do not stay on top of new science and technology. I also don't like pinched faces- too uptight lol
