What is Psychiatric Assessment?

Psychiatric assessment typically involves a mental status examination and the taking of a case history; and psychological tests may be conducted. Physical examinations may be carried out and on occasion neuro images or other neurophysiological measurements taken. Diagnostic procedures vary.

If it is determined by the assessment that medication is necessary, an evaluation by one of our psychiatrists is completed and a follow up appointment for medication and possibly counseling will be made. Sometimes the best treatment is a combination of both medication and counseling.
