I was thrilled to find out I was finally accepted for Medicaid, but I'm having a lot of trouble finding well-reviewed psychiatrists who are actually accepting new patients. If anyone can recommend a good psychiatrist in NYC who accepts Medicaid or does sliding scale, I'd be eternally grateful! Thank you!!

Can you call the Medicaid office and see if they have a list of preferred providers in your area?

Also, I don't know how accurate this list is, but I just googled "Medicaid psychiatrist New York City" and got this list:

http://psychiatrists.psychologytoday.com/rms/prof_results.php?state=NY&spec=454

You can try looking through those and call their offices to see if they're accepting new patients, and if they accept Medicaid. If you have a general doctor, you can also ask them if they can make a referral to a psychiatrist in your area who accepts Medicaid.

Good luck!
