How can I be a good advocate for my partner in a medical setting?

My partner and I have a strong suspicion that he may have ADHD. We're based in the UK and are struggling within the NHS system to get him a diagnosis. He has another medical appointment today and wants me to come in with him. How can I be a good advocate for him (in six hours' time) in what feels like a somewhat broken system? More details inside.

Looking for a doctor in DC

I'm looking for a GREAT primary care physician in Washington, DC, preferably in/near Chinatown or Capitol Hill. I'd love someone who could see a new patient in the next week or two (ie, doesn't have a months-long waiting list) and who is part of a larger practice/clinic. [more inside]

Where are the best NHS doctors (GPs) in London?

Hi! We (husband, wife, child) are moving to London soon (more questions on that to come!) One thing that's really important to me is to be in an area that we can register with a really good GP. I've lived in the UK before, and had hit or miss experiences, and don't want this to happen again -- so much so that I want to suss out the great GPs to help make a decision on where we should live. So, who/where are the awesome GPs in London? Or how else would I go about researching this?

Chicago MD (GP) sought for someone with strong health anxiety issues.

I haven't had a primary care doctor in a long time and 'think it might be time for a chronic "doctor avoider" such as myself to have one. Due to obvious fear of illness, death, doctors, tests and the like I would love to find a really kind doctor with a great bedside manner who isn't averse to alternative medicine and is associated with a hospital. Thanks.

A friend is looking for a fat-friendly general practitioner in Austin, TX.

A friend is looking for a fat-friendly general practitioner in Austin, TX. (Someone who subscribes to the idea of health at every size would be ideal — though really it doesn't matter how they label themself, as long as they're generally sensitive about body-image/weight/food issues. We've seen this fat friendly health professionals list, but the one GP listed in Austin is apparently no longer practicing here.) Suggestions? [more inside]

What's up with my GP's bedside manner?

I'm confused by my GP's bedside manner. I went to see Dr. B today about my sciatic pain after my physio recommended it. She assessed me and referred me for an xray, which is fine. After that, when I asked about relieving the pain of muscle spasms in my leg, she said "I have something that would work perfectly..." and "I'd be happy to give you a note so you can stay home from work..." She seemed to be either thinking aloud, or waiting for me to respond. In the end I walked away with neither. What's going on? [more inside]

Primary care doctor / GP in Chicago area?

I'm fairly new to the Chicago area; now that my medical coverage has kicked in, I'm looking for a good general practitioner / primary care physician. I live in Oak Park, but that's not really a restriction; I'm certainly willing to travel a bit for an excellent doctor. So, Chicagoland submodule of HealthFilter: your suggestions?
