I had foot surgery here, and the surgery…I had foot surgery here, and the surgery room was impeccably (clean). My son whom has Transverse Myelitis (a rare neurological condition - https://vimeo.com/21806274 ), some doctors never heard of sadly enough. Many doctors do not know the symptoms of TM, nor how to treat it. At this particular hospital they either knew, or found out while my son was there - whatever the case, they treated my son for his symptoms. The care was great. The doctors, nurses, and staff were professional, kind, good listeners, and knowledgeable. My son did not have to wait very long to see a doctor. The nurses and staff kept checking up on him. The ER was very clean. My son (TM symptoms) and I (with foot surgery)l got TOP NOTCH CARE HERE. (pretty sure this one is the actual location or ER my son was in - need to verify that later).

The doctor evaluated me very extensively. He also spent time assessing and addressing my problems. He was very knowledgeable about psychiatric and other medications. I felt better after each visit.

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.
