Hourly cost of psychiatrist in NYC or another big city?

Just curious. I see an *excellent* psychiatrist in NYC. He has a private practice and his fee 250$/hour (a 45 minute hour, of course!)--up from $200/hour a few years ago. He has training in psychoanalysis in addition to psychiatry and he has very flexible hours. I think he has 10-15 yrs of experience.

I just wanted to know if that seems outrageously high because he is about to raise his fees again. Is there anyone else out there who sees a psychiatrist in NYC or L.A. or another "expensive" city? Is $250 normal? I've heard that some NYC psychiatrists charge up to $300...???

I have paid $150 an hour in Atlanta. Based on the differences in cost of living, that is on par with what you are paying.
