Absolutely worst service ever. They don't offer appointments, suggest to wait outside 4 hours before they're open to be seen, don't give a damn about their guests, have no problem sending people on their way regardless of their state. Seriously I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy.

You have to wait MONTHS before getting in with a psychiatrist in Augusta, so my appointment isn't till November, which they didn't even have listed because their DUMBF**K receptionist who's a complete b**** didn't have my name spelled right. I had to go to the ER yesterday for my condition, where they didn't do anything for me either (not even adjust my meds), but merely told me I needed to call my new psychiatrist and get in sooner. So I called them and the receptionist told me she didn't have anything sooner and didn't see urgent cases. If it's urgent they recommend you go to GR Health and see the on staff psychiatrist... which I DID AND HE DID NOTHING FOR ME BUT TOLD ME TO CALL YOU.

Tips & Advices
A child psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in issues that affect the mental and emotional health of children and teens. Child psychiatrists can provide treatment for children and teenagers who suffer from depression, autism, anxiety disorders, attention disorders, drug addictions, eating disorders, mood disorders, and a wide range of behavioral problems.
Psychiatrists typically ask questions that focus  on the issues that are having a negative effect on your life. In an initial visit with a psychiatrist, you may be asked about symptoms you've experienced, and ways in which you've tried to deal with them. You might be asked about current and past medical conditions, as well asa family health history.
A referral is an authorization from your doctor saying that a certain type of treatment is medically necessary, and it's usually required if you want your insurance company to cover the costs associated with a visit to a psychiatrist. If you don't have insurance, a referral is not required to schedule a psychiatrist visit.
Psychiatrists and psychologists sometimes collaborate, and this typically takes place when working with patients who have serious mental health problems. In cases like this, a psychologist will treat the patient from a behavioral perspective. A psychiatrist will complement this treatment with care that handles issues concerning biology, neurology, and the prescription of drugs.
Many psychiatrists specialize in treating certain conditions. Some psychiatrists focus on substance abuse therapy, and this is the treatment of addiction to substances like alcohol, narcotics, and tobacco. Others specialize in biological psychiatry, which is the treatment of brain chemistry disorders like depression and schizophrenia. Psychiatrists might also specialize in treating elderly patients or children and adolescents.
