A 30 minute appt is about 7 minutes, but I'm still paying for 30 minutes.... I requested a 15 min appt, but they don't offer them. The staff is not overly friendly; I feel like I'm bothering them but checking in or calling to request an appt. Almost impossible to get someone on the phone.

Got an appointment in a very timely manner thanks to their sensible intake process. By this I mean in about a month. Dr Auster was very professional and very helpful. (I would point out to the writers of bad reviews that there is a shortage of child psychiatrists in Boston. A friend of mine recently described child psychiatry as "imagine at the end of every day of seeing patients for 8 hours, you have another 4-8 hours of follow-up work." So I do not expect care over the phone.)
