Hey Christ_empowered!

Wow! Those are scary stories! That is terrible. I live in a big city and there are 4 big hospitals who do ECT. All the website mention acute low dose unilateral ECT, but then starting medications. They all mention that they want patients off maintenance ECT by 6 months and on meds. I don't think it is lucrative for the hospitals. They could be using the space for ECT to do knee replacement, nose jobs that pay$50,000 to $100,000. I think ECT reimbursement is maybe low to the doctors. Actually here in the city, regular non ECT psychiatrist charge $500 per 1 hour session for therapy and medication. I think $500 once a week is more lucrative for psychiatrist than doing ECT. I think this is why there are very few ECT docs. I am actually having a hard time finding one.

That makes me sad to here what you have seen. What do think about this? Maybe people need to come to the city for ECT


PS But I would love to have responded to a medication. I don't want ECT, but feel it might be best treatment for me now
