Whitestone Pediatrics
We absolutely love Dr. Holmes. As first time parents, my husband and I were so worried about finding the right pediatrician for our baby boy. After reading all of the amazing reviews regarding Dr. Holmes and Whitestone Pediatrics, we gave it a go and boy are we happy. He is amazing with our little one. He never makes me feel like my 50 thousand questions are dumb. :-) We definitely recommend Dr. Holmes.

Dr. Singletary has the best bedside manner, is great with children, makes the visit pleasant and enjoyable. She also takes the time to inform parents of any treatment needs, procedures, etc. My daughter had several 'not so pleasant' former dental appointments, but once Dr. Singletary completed her exam, she was thrilled. I would not trust any other dentist with my child's dental needs.

A no nonsense psychiatrist. Not easy to find
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.
