When you’re not feeling well, getting access to healthcare should be as easy as possible. That means having access to a provider who accepts your health insurance plan. Your Local Psychiatrist NYC is pleased to announce that we are now accepting two Medicaid Managed Care plans…Healthfirst for primary care and Fidelis Care for both primary care and mental health care. Visit our website for a complete list of insurance plans we currently accept.
Because of the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Your Local Psychiatrist NYC is not accepting walk-in patients at this time. However, we are accepting new patients who may need mental health services such as counseling or psychotherapy and those in need of medical services such as internal medicine or primary care.
To help protect the health of our patients and our healthcare practitioners, we are conducting the majority of our care via telemedicine/teletherapy. Telehealth technology offers an advantage for patients, physicians, and therapists, especially during the current public health crisis. It is an effective way to provide care while following social distancing guidelines. Because this technology can help eliminate the need for many in-office visits, it is currently our preferred method of delivering healthcare.
To schedule an appointment with one of our practitioners, please call us at 718-307-1577, and we will be happy to help you set up a telehealth visit.
