Barry Fenton is without a doubt the best there is. He can be difficult to get into see, simply because of the high number of people trying to see him. His personality is slightly more 'matter of fact'. But don't confuse that with uncaring or rude. Barry Fenton is anything but that. He is amazingly good and he not only cares, but he takes the time to truly understand the underlying issues at hand and then takes the time to find the best solution to deal with those issues. As an engineer I know the importance and value of having the very best expertise in every subject matter, and Barry Fenton is the best. On a scale of 1-10, Barry Fenton gets an 11.

I was seen by Kim nurse practitioner. She showed no empathy and made no attempts to prove she cared in the least. I would think she was fresh out of residency or was in the field for nothing but the paycheck. I would recommend this office but wouldn't suggest making an appointment with Kim.

Dr Fenton is excellent. The way he communicates is unusual and may offend some people, but I think they have a chip on their shoulder. I like people who are different. He's cool!!
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.
