Welcome to North Raleigh Psychiatry, PA. Our practice is committed to provide the best psychiatric treatment possible for adults, children and adolescents. We take pride in the quality of care we provide in all aspects of the patient’s interaction with us. Our team of psychiatrists has a wide range of experience in psychiatric disorders to help individuals and families in the treatment of their symptoms. Also, specialized Forensic Psychiatry services are provided when needed. Our approach starts with a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation to
assess the current psychiatric difficulties, as well as to address the patient’s strengths, and then to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. We work with several mental health providers and physicians in the community to help meet the particular needs of each individual.
Our office staff is friendly and respectful. Our billing and administrative staff are always willing to be helpful. We provide one business day emergency coverage and will usually return routine phone calls within one business day. We understand that seeing a psychiatrist can be a difficult decision for many people and try to make the experience as positive as possible
North Raleigh Psychiatry was founded in 1987 by Wilmer Betts, MD, who was the first psychiatrist in private practice in Raleigh. Initially the group specialized in Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine. Although addiction treatment was later discontinued, the group added the subspecialties of Forensic Psychiatry in 1990 and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in 1992. The group moved to its current location in January of 2006.
We currently provide the following services:
Psychiatric evaluations for children, adolescents and adults
