Mayo is a waste of $ and time. I've known of more people who went to Mayo with high hopes, only to be completely disappointed. Basically, their modus operendi is proving whether a patient's symptoms are psychological or not, and they tend to err on the side of psych vs. not psych. They do not believe anything except their own test results, and if what you have doesn't fit in a nice neat diagnostic box that they themselves have established, they automatically label you a psych case and send you home with antidepressants. I know far too many local doctors more than willing to give me antidepressants, so why spend all that $$ and time going to Mayo to get the same??? Just not worth it in my opinion...
