I am fortunate in that I go in yearly for my exam and then every 2-3 years I replace my eyeglasses. Therefore, I really only stop in once or twice a year, max. Every time I walk in the door it makes me smile to be greeted on a first name basis. When I go in for my yearly exam, I am always so pleasantly surprised to find out they stocked up on decaf coffee bc they remember it is what I drink. While waiting to get back to the exam, and even during the initial testings, there are inquiries into how the family is doing and how things have been going at work. The exam is complete and I always feel the explanations about each of my results are done in layman's terms, while the doctor is also open to questions or a my need for clarification. When getting new frames, there is no pressure to purchase anything and my questions and inquiries are always given prompt answers and/or solutions. The annual exam is usually done within the hour and my fitting and selection is usually done within an hour (unless I make the silly mistake of bringing family to "help" pick the right lenses!) When I run out of my supplements, I can email the office, and they ship it out to me! Visiting Northwest Vision is a professional, personal, and pleasant experience every time. Thanks, team!! See you in a year!

I was having eye issues and was sent to a neuro opthamologist and waited 4 months to get in. After still having issues I mentioned to NW Vision that I wanted to make sure Dr Min had gotten a report from the specialist. They had me come in and see Dr Sims since she specialized in binocular vision and in just a week I saw her, had comprehensive tests and she took her time with me performing testing to determine my double vision problem. Very friendly, professional, patient as is the rest of the staff. I started going to that office when I moved from my hometown and was referred to Dr Min by my former eye doctor in Toledo. Dr Min is also friendly, professional and patient and I highly recommend both of these doctors. They have state of the art equipment and I like that this means they don't have to dilate my eyes for exams since they provide this equipment that eliminates that step. Great selection of eyewear if you wear glasses.

Harding/OSU has helped me learn to manage my bi-polar illness. I've attended the out patient day treatment program and am very pleased with my results. Because of OSU/Harding I've come from daily severe depression to functioning very well in society. I'm able to work and enjoy life. There are still a few days of depression and anxiety but outweighed by far of days which are enjoyable. Thank you staff at OSU/Harding for your expertise in mental health.

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.
