An initial psychiatric evaluation occurs over several visits and includes a detailed review of your current challenges and issues, medication and treatment history, medical problems, psychosocial history, and past psychological testing if available. Patients are encouraged to bring their past psychiatric records and prescription history [from the pharmacy]. We also offer evaluations for patients that require a second opinion for their condition.
Our practice utilizes comprehensive psychometric rating scales, screens, and tests to aid in assessing and monitoring your condition. We take pride in our multi-modal approach to not only learning about the client as a whole, but being able to offer an individualized treatment plan with long-term monitoring and re-evaluation.
For patients that are in need of psychoeducational, psychological, neuropsychological, and psychosexual evaluations, please discuss with your provider who can refer you to a psychologist in the community.
