Adult & Child Ctr
I have been a patient at Adult and Child for 7 years and for the first 6 years I received excellent care.. The doctor and my therapist saved my life. I got to see my therapist whenever I needed her.. My Doctor decided to leave Adult and Child because they cut the amount of time that he could spend with patients and he didn't just want to be a pill pusher. My therapist left for the same reason. Although I'm so sad that they left, I understand why they did. The new doctor spends about 10 minutes with a patient. If you try to talk to him about how you feels or your concerns he doesn't have the time to listen. Additionally he has read patient profiles and history to properly treat them. He lowered a medicine that I had been taking for 6 years, discontinued one medicine, then offered me three more scripts to replace the anxiety medicine that I was taking. Twice he offered a medicine that I'm allergic to. They don't have a therapist for me either.

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.
