Psychiatrists

When you join Prairie, you'll only work with board-certified psychiatrists. That can make all the difference.

What is a psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists are medical doctors (MD or DO) who specialize in diagnosing and treating people with mental illnesses. Psychiatrists have the highest training requirements of any mental health professional, and can manage most if not all aspects of a patient’s mental health care.

Psychiatrists are the premier providers in mental health because they check most (if not all) the boxes. Unfortunately, there’s a severe shortage of psychiatrists. This means longer wait times to see one in your insurance network, higher costs and other barriers to care like requiring a referral.
