You could be a victim of someone using a Diploma Mill PHD or MD degree.

Does Your Doctor Have a Fake Degree? The Billion-Dollar Industry Th...

• The number of earned PhD degrees in the United States is 40,000 to 45,000 each year. The number of fake PhDs bought each year from diploma mills exceeds 50,000. In other words, more than half of all people claiming a new PhD have a fake degree.

• Fake medical degrees are an urgent problem. It is easy to buy a medical degree from a fake school, or a counterfeit diploma in the name of a real school. Twenty-five years ago, a Congressional committee calculated that there were over 5,000 fake doctors in the United States, and there are many more now. People have died because of these fakes.

That could explain most of the psychiatrists I've been refered to over the years. Either that or they were failed doctors who'd done a bit of evening-class psychology in their spare time.

It might be easier to "pass" as a real psychiatrist than a medical doctor. That's a thought.

You have to do your research before seeing any doctors.
