Professional statement

Dr. Natan Schleider, M.D., in private practice since 2005 is the founder of New York Psychiatry and General Practice Physicians.

Also doing business as DOCTOR IN THE FAMILY, Dr. Schleider's goal is providing simple, hassle free mental & medical care with no hidden fees.

Dr. Schleider thinks 'waiting rooms' are absurd (his office has no waiting room since he runs on time).

All the paperwork and insurance hassles most patients have to deal with are managed by Dr. Schleider's professional staff.

GIVEN THE ONGOING COVID19 PANDEMIC AND THE ACCESS MOST PATIENTS HAVE TO PHONES AND THE INTERNET, PHYSICIAN CONSULTS OCCUR IN THE SAFEST, EASIEST, & MOST COMFORTABLE MANNER FOR PATIENTS:

-Prefer texting? No problem.

-In person? Come to the office.

-Phone call? Love to talk

-Telemedicine? Done via smart phone, computer, tablet, etc

-Snail mail? Yes, if you want a paper letter you got it

-Email? Fine

Dr. Schleider's patients are mostly aged 20s to 50s, educated and high functioning, and looking for personal boutique medical care. His patient like the idea that they get their Lexapro, Lipitor, and Lorazepam in one stop instead of seeing a bunch of different doctors...

Most therapy and treatment is based on medicine management aka psychopharmacology. For those patient who don'twant conventional pharmaceuticals, alternative treatment options from herbal remedies to medical marijuana are options.

Over they years, Dr. Schleider's practice has grown to include psychiatrists, nurses, medics, and therapists.

Despite practicing remotely most of the time, the his Manhattan office off Park Avenue at East 35th Street is open 6 days a week. Schedule an appointment and come in to his luxury office for: lab testing, EKGs, urine tests, flu shots, IVs, vaccines (except COVID), routine physical exams, and more.


Message to clients

'To doctor' means to teach and while I am always learning from patients, books, and life, here are some common points I reiterate to my patients:

First of all, you, the patient, are the customer. 'The customer is always right' is an expression often used in business but holds true for medicine. For example, if your pharmacy is always messing up your prescriptions, find a new pharmacy to give your business to.

Second: Doctor's don't know everything, not even close. My mentor says '95% of patients get better DESPITE what the doctor does.' While I practice 75 percent psychopharmacology (medicine management for mental health issues), I have no agenda to medicate you. I don't own stock in pharma companies. I don't get wined and dined by pharmaceutical reps. You are not married to a mental health medicine for life. Unlike visiting a tattoo parlor, decisions we make are not permanent.

Third and finally a note on fees and billing: PLEASE note which insurance plans we work BEFORE scheduling. Please review our fees BEFORE scheduling if you are paying out of pocket. I try to make medical fees as transparent and easy for the patient as possible (which is why they are listed on line and on this website). DON'T FREAK OUT IF YOU INSURANCE SAYS YOU OWE US MONEY, 95% OF THE TIME THEY ARE WRONG.
