I’m looking to see a psychiatrist without a referral

Doctor's Assistant: How many psychiatrist visits have you done? Were they helpful?

How much would it be to pay out of pocket

Doctor's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Psychologist's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

It’s my first time ... I know I need to see someone I think I have ADHD

Doctor's Assistant: How have you been sleeping? Any insomnia or other issues?

I’m 30 and today I’m at the point where I just know I can’t live like this anymoreb

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

I am willing to pay out of pocket for visits and medication

Doctor's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Well I feel like I’m drowning at work, my relationships have suffered

Hi, thank you for writing. My name is ***** ***** mental health services, like seeing a psychiatrist, should not require a referral. This is especially true if you plan to pay out of pocket. Unfortunately, this site isn't quite what you need as it cannot provide medication or in depth assessment so you are better off contacting options in your community. Below is one site where you can scope out potential options. hey usually have costs of services listed on their page, although not always. And definitely consider seeing a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner as well, as they can offer similar services for much less cost.

I am proud of you for taking this very first step in getting yourself support! you deserve that and do not have to fight this by yourself. I do hope this help! Please let me know if i can support you further.

-Leah

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
