Greenpoint Psychiatric Services is a comprehensive mental health clinic located in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Dr. Kerson and his associates provide a full range of therapeutic services to individuals, couples and families. Dr. Kerson also sees patients at his offices in the Union Square neighborhood of Manhattan.
Until we opened our doors in 1988, there were no mental health services available in the Greenpoint/ Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Since we opened, we have helped hundreds of our neighbors ﬁnd concrete, practical solutions to their individual mental health challenges.
There is generally a wait of at least two weeks to see Dr. Kerson. Patients can, however, request an urgent appointment. Dr. Kerson will generally contact you the Friday or Saturday after you get in touch and will be booking for the week after that or later. Dr. Kerson works Mondays and Thursdays in Greenpoint, and Wednesdays and Fridays in Manhattan.
Insurance and payment options: Aetna, Beacon Health, Cigna, Some BlueCross BlueShield health plans, EmblemHealth HIP, EmblemHealth GHI, NYS Empire Plan, or Value Options. We also accept direct payment from patients.
