Major Difference About Psych Express

Sometimes its beneficial to speak face-to-face rather than discussing a crisis on the phone. Our goal is to offer person-to-person services to walk-in patients.

Many walk-in services are manned by crisis workers. Psych Express in Crystal Lake have Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, who can professionally diagnose and properly prescribe medications during the patient’s walk-in visit. This ensures that the patient will have the best diagnosis and prescriptions available.

We are not a 24 hours service, if you believe you are in need of immediate care at any given time, please call the McHenry County Crisis Hotline number: 1.800.892.8900.

Reduced Waiting Times for Walk-Ins

When one is seeking emotional help, waiting times can be a burden. We offer care with little to no waiting time. Fast convenient care from Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners with services for both assessment and pharmacotherapy.

Preliminary Screening by Registered Psychiatric Nurse

A Registered Nurse will evaluate preliminary screening to determine the proper MD or Psychiatric NP for every walk-in patient.

Offering Cost Efficient Care

Psych Express is less expensive compared to the cost of an emergency room visit which can cost ten times more. We offer specialized care at the cost of an office visit.
