3. Ask your family doctor or psychologist or talk therapist for a referral to the best psychiatrist in NYC for bipolar.
4. Know your budget. The BEST psychiatrists in NYC often do not accept health insurance. If the best psychiatrists accept your insurance, realize you may be seeing them weekly or monthly. Copays and coinsurance fees may add up if using insurance.
