I brought my mother to see Dr. Ginsberg because she had been deteriorating mentally over many years and until recently had refused to get help. She revealed her symptoms to him, many of which I was unaware were occurring. In retrospect, she was paranoid so she was afraid to tell our family about many of her symptoms. Dr. Ginsberg was able to get her to reveal that she was hearing voices, seeing things, and had trouble thinking. He prescribed a medication that has started to reduce some of her symptoms.

I developed a rash a few weeks after starting a medication that Dr. Ginsberg started. I am also taking a medication from another doctor that affects my immune system. Dr. Ginsberg looked at the rash and concluded that my psychiatric medication was not causing the rash. Because my mood was so much improved I did not stop the prescribed medication. I went next to my primary care physician who treated me with Diflucan which helped the rash (from my yeast infection.)

Dr. Ginsberg ordered lab work when I first started to become a patient. I was disappointed that my liver function tests were very elevated and I was not given another prescription for Adderall. I was referred back to my primary care physician who ran additional tests and discovered that I had mononucleosis. (Now I know why I was so tired.) I am doing much better now as my liver tests are normal again. After that Dr. Ginsberg restarted my ADHD medication.

My sister is a schizophrenic and has been receiving monthly injections of a new medication prescribed by Dr. Ginsberg. She has been working in a cafeteria for several years. She was switched to the new medication because her previous injection caused side effects. I am happy to reported that she started to teach herself how to read.

He is a matter of fact, no nonsense doctor. He listens and asks individualized questions, unlike other doctors I have seen. - The doctors that have their set ideas and answers and wont listen to you because they are right- end of story.

Dr. Earl is great. Tap on the glass and the white haired receptionist doesn't open it if she's on the phone. You can be standing there 5 minutes. It won't matter. Its very rude. She could at least open it to acknowledge you.

My wife and I have gone to Dr Earle for years. We have always found him to be helpful, kind, and very professional. The whole office is awesome. We wouldn't go anywhere else. I always feel listened to.

I appreciate Dr. Ginsberg's approach. My children have ADHD and have been resistant to taking their medication. He was able to motivate my daughter to read a book this summer.

Dr. Ginsberg is wonderful. Very knowledgable. Caring. Always spends quite a few minutes out of his busy day to sit and talk after the appointment is over.

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.
