Accepting new adult patients (18+). Both VIRTUAL and IN PERSON visits available. Request a new patient appointment online at www.AmyWaltonMD.com. I have been a board certified psychiatrist in Austin since 2007. After 13 years treating people in crisis at Seton Shoal Creek Hospital, I am acutely aware that the lack of mental health providers in Central Texas contributes in unnecessary delays in receiving high quality mental health treatment and can lead to psychiatric crisis and hospitalization. I opened my private practice to help bridge that gap.
