Dr. Kevin K McPherson, MD
I've had one visit with this place and the counselor I went to see was nice. But before I could attend my next appointment, they called and cancelled it saying they'd call me back to reschedule it. I waited and waited, but no call back. So I called to find out when I could see her, they told me they couldn't see me due to insurance issues, which they are listed in my insurance handbook.They want to refer me to New Horizons, a joke of an organization, to say the least. I think, because I'm a transgender, they won't see me, but I could be wrong ( I doubt it though).

Mieles David MD
Dr. Mieles and Bonnie have been my saving grace. You may have to wait a little while to see Dr. Mieles but his personality has always been welcoming. They have never treated me like a number and that is so important in this field. Jessica at the front always has a great demeanor. I know it's hard to work with patients in this area of expertise but they have done a great job and for that I will always be thankful.
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.
