About

What services does your practice offer?

Forsythia Urgent Care Psychiatric Clinic is an on-line urgent care psychiatric clinic that specializes in treating patients who are in the midst of a psychiatric crisis and need to see a provider urgently. We offer urgent psychiatric assessment and medication management to patients who are new to treatment, need to get back into treatment, or feel their treatment has not been optimized.

What are your practice's specialties?

We specialize in treating and stabilizing patients with depression, anxiety, or ADHD. We also treat mania, psychosis, or personality disorders on a case-by-case basis (we won't charge you if we feel our clinic is not the right fit for you). Our patients want to get stabilized ASAP without breaking the bank. Our On-line Urgent Care Psychiatric Clinic is open Monday-Friday from 12pm-5pm.

How does payment work at your practice?

Our rates are $200 for an initial appointment (typically 30 minutes) and $100 for medication management follow up appointments (typically less than 15 minutes). We will give you a receipt after each session to bring to your health insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement (they typically reimburse about half of the cost of the session).
