There are only 2 psychiatrists in the system in Tyler, and DR. Scardina is very good. He has helped a lot with my teen boy. The only thing I wasn't happy about was that at 15, my son had to agree to get his medical records sent to a treatment facility. He was only 15 and I thought the parents could just get it, but he insisted that my son agree to to getting his own records....so we kind of lied to our son about why we were getting his records, but he got the help he needed at the center.
