In recent years, getting a doctor’s appointment in Santa Barbara has become increasingly difficult, especially for patients that are using insurance. Between a shortage of physicians and a general consolidation in the healthcare system, patients sometimes wait months before they can see a doctor.
This is especially true with mental health services. Securing an appointment with a qualified psychiatrist can take weeks or months within the region’s largest health systems. Unfortunately, a patient experiencing a mental health crisis can’t afford to wait that long.
“Our daughter struggles with depression,” said Patricia [NAME OMITTED FOR PATIENT PRIVACY]. “We’ve been waiting for more than 6 months to get her an appointment with someone in town. We finally started driving her down to Ventura because we just couldn’t wait any longer.”
Santa Barbara Psychiatrists has set a new standard for mental health care on the Central Coast. Patients can set appointments within days, and can choose from a full range of practitioners that specialize in everything from eating disorders to depression and anxiety treatment.
“We try to make things as easy as possible for our patients,” said James Miller, a company spokesperson. “It usually takes less than a week to get an appointment. Our billing team is great, they can work with almost any health insurance plan. We see a lot of UCSB students so our flexibility with insurance really helps.”
