Study: Access To Psychiatrists Often Limited For Residents Of US Major Metropolitan Areas

HealthDay (10/16, Mozes) reports that, according to a study published online Oct. 15 in the journal Psychiatric Services, a publication of the American Psychiatric Association, “residents of major US metropolitan areas who need a psychiatrist are often likely to come up empty-handed, regardless of ability to pay.” After attempting “to get an appointment with 360 outpatient psychiatrists based in either Boston, Houston or Chicago,” researchers encountered “wrong numbers, unreturned phone calls, and full practices.”
