Choosing a Psychiatrist in New York
When you live in New York, one thing that you never have a shortage of is choices. Just as there are a multitude of choices in restaurants, newspapers, schools and museums in New York, there are quite a large number of options when it comes to finding a psychiatrist in New York as well. Sometimes however, when there are lots of choices, finding the right option can be difficult. Here are a few tips to help you find a psychiatrist in New York who is the best fit for you:
- Ask friends or family–if you can get a personal recommendation, that can go a long way in making the right decision. Your primary care physician may also be a good person to ask for a reference.
- Consider reading some online reviews. These can be invaluable in showing you whether a psychiatrist is well-respected by current and former clients. Try to read a number of these reviews to make sure you get a clear picture. Websites like Google, Vitals.com, HealthGrades.com, WebMD and ZocDoc.com are good places to start. You can also perform a web search for the doctor’s name and the word review, for example, you can search “Jim Dhrymes MD reviews” using Google.
- Finally, it is often useful to call and chat with the psychiatrist. Taking just a few minutes to get a feel for what you can expect from the practice can really pay off and can be quite helpful to see if the doctor will be a good fit.
