Patient discussion about hearing disorder

Q. I hear about Bipolar disorder and I would like to know about this. Hi, this is SamirAuston. I hear about Bipolar disorder and I would like to know about this. Can any one tell me the best bipolar hospital?

A. Hi Samir again, do you know the film "Patch Adams"? This film is based on a true story. Watch this film and listen exactly to the conversations (particularly from Robin Williams). A hospital has a medical staff. You have to learn, how you check a doctor to recognize which one is for you useful and which one you would prefer to put in the trash. Respect them, but avoid them when they are not honest with you. You ask yourself now perhaps, how you can check a doctor? Here I prepared for the Community a recipe:

For the hospital: I would prefer to stay in a hospital on the country-side than in a large city. What about you?
