Finding the right help

Son is 28 years old. Very bright by all accounts. Finished private high school but was behavorially challenge. Has so far attended 4 universities in the US and abroad but did not spend more than 2 years in any and has started study ranging from Medicine to architecture to literature to etc. and lost interest after a semester or two. Same with with work: cannot hold a job. Has tried once to self destruct. Never underwent any psychiatric nor psychological evaluation. Sibling "normal".
Suspect a biological basis for the behavior.
Question: should he see a psychologist or a psychiatrist or an endocrinologist or a neuroscientist or etc.? And how do we go finding the right expert in the New York metropolitan area? He is more than willing to seek help.

He should see a psychiatrist for evaluation, and then go from there. I am located in Manhattan and would be happy to see your son in consultation, and either treat him directly, or refer him to the proper expert here at Cornell Hospital. I can be reached at 212 628 8854.

Another alternative would be to ask your New York family doctor to make a referral.
