Not surprised. All they care about is numbers, not clients. They certainly don't care about the employees any more than they do clients. They had a massive exodus of employees because of this and, for the most part, can no longer attract quality people to work there.

After waiting from 1130 am to 3 pm I finally get in for my first appointment to see a person who receives new clients. She then just turned to a pile of papers and said " ok do you can go here, here or here" and when I informed her I wanted to make an appointment at this facility she said " oh no, you have to go somewhere else, we're much too busy". I needed help and they just shooed me off to go find help somewhere else. I waited all that time for something I could've found on my own at home. They were entirely unprofessional and I'm surprised if anyone going there gets any actual help.
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.
