I am looking private practice psychiatrist within a 25mi.

Customer Question

I am looking for a private practice psychiatrist within a 25mi. radius that takes my Anthem Medicare insurance. I've called everyone and can't seem to get any help. I can't go to my local CHMC because I am a nurse and know too many people there. Help!

Dear Dr. Z; Dr. Lomas only treats people with sexual disfunction. Dr. Kline is retiring soon. I have been waiting for two weeks now for Dr. Eggerman to return my phone call. As I've said, I have checked out as many on-line as I could but thanks for trying. Janet

I am sorry, there are very limited options near you and many more doctors are no longer accepting medicare or medicaid now a days either. Have you considered if your insurance allows for telehealth type treatment? You can ask about this website to see if Medicare allows for it given the lack of resources near you:
