Services

Psychiatric Evaluations

Psychiatric Evaluations may vary according to their purpose. A general psychiatric evaluation involves interviewing the patient and reviewing any collateral data to determine the possibility of an existing mental illness. Upon completion of a psychiatric evaluation the practitioner will work with the patient to develop a treatment plan that may or may not include psychiatric medications and/or therapy. Reasons for requesting a psychiatric evaluation may include depression, anxiety, decrease in cognitive functioning, impairment at school or work, grief or loss issues, etc.

Services Include:

  • bariatric surgery
  • pain stimulator implant
  • court competency determinations
  • forensic and other court evaluations

Medication Management

Upon completion of a psychiatric evaluation, a patient may then begin to have medication management appointments. These appointments last 15-30 minutes and may occur every 1-6 months depending on the severity of illness and progress of the patient. Medication Management appointments are used to monitor the efficacy of medications and adjust or change medications based on ongoing symptoms or side effects.

Psychotherapy

Therapy services may be individual, family, or marital based on the need of the patient. This is a therapeutic interaction between the patient and staff, in which the client talks about problems or symptoms they are having, in hopes of developing positive coping skills. Patients may or may not also use medications in addition to therapy.
