Typically lasts 90 minutes. Medical, psychiatric, and social histories are reviewed and discussed. At the end of this session we will offer you our diagnostic opinion as well as an initial treatment plan. We will also provide appropriate psycho-education and support.
Typically lasts 90 minutes. Much like an initial evaluation in content and process, however, the purpose of this visit is not to establish regular care with us. Our evaluation can be sent to another physician with whom you are working.
Typically lasts 30 minutes. If you are in need of a refill, but have been feeling stable for a long time, then perhaps a brief "check in" is all you need. Other patients who are new to treatment or in the middle of changing their medication regimen might need more time. All treatment recommendations are evidence based. Side effects are reviewed and discussed. Ultimately, the decision to take any recommended medication is the patients'.
Typically lasts 50-60 minutes, and is often, but not necessarily, combined with a medication management appointment. Different approaches are utilized, depending on your needs (cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, supportive). Our approach is always collaborative. General goals may include improved functioning in the world, with others, and within oneself.
Depending on your psychiatric history and current medication regimen, you may need one time / pre screening or more regular lab work.
It is extremely important to us that you get the level of care that you need. If we are unable to provide that level of care in this setting, we will help facilitate the transfer of your care to a more suitable program. We do our best to collaborate with your other providers (therapists, medical doctors, intensive outpatient program staff) as needed.
