          Psychiatrist To Feuding Parents Of Boy With Psychiatric Disorder: : ‘He’ll Never Get Diagnosed Properly Because There’s Too Much Noise Around Him’

          VIDEO

          February 26, 2019

          Susan’s ex-husband, Michael, disagrees with her assertion that their 11-year-old son, Bodhi, has childhood-onset schizophrenia, like his older sister, Janni, who was diagnosed at age 6. He says Bodhi has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and insists that Susan’s quest for a diagnosis of schizophrenia for Bodhi is putting their son in danger.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution? Michael claims that Susan was going from “doctor to doctor” in order to find someone to prescribe Clozaril (clozapine) to Bodhi, a drug of “last resort” for untreatable schizophrenia. Susan denies specifically seeking out the drug for Bodhi but admits he’s seen more than 50 doctors and has been hospitalized over 20 times. She claims that Michael “cut and run” on their marriage and their children and that he wants Bodhi to be institutionalized. Michael adamantly denies the claim.

          Los Angeles based psychiatrist, Dr. Phil Advisory Board member and Medical Director for the County of Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services, Dr. Charles Sophy joins the conversation.

          “The bottom line is, he’ll never get diagnosed properly because there’s too much noise around him,” says Dr. Sophy.

          When he tells Susan that she has to “step out” and allow Bodhi’s doctors to do their job, she replies, “But they’re not.”

          When Dr. Sophy tells her, “They can’t when you’re in their face,” how does Susan respond?

          The conclusion of this two-part Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. Check here to find out where you can watch.
