A careful and complete initial assessment is the cornerstone of psychiatric treatment. As clinicians, we are trained to screen for neurological and medical problems, which may play a role in causing the problems you or your family member are having. Conducted in a relaxed, non-judgemental, and professional environment, we will ask questions about the nature of your symptoms, family history, personal background, prior treatment and current concerns. As needed, diagnostic and laboratory testing will be ordered.
We also conduct thorough assessments using the most up to date testing measures; written reports can be produced if needed. We use data to drive treatment planning, and provide educational and medical reinforcement to outside practitioners and support professionals.
