We offer a full range of Psychiatric Services including psychiatric evaluations and medication management.

What is a Psychiatric Evaluation?

A psychiatric evaluation is a process of gathering information about a person with the purpose of making a psychiatric diagnosis.  Such an evaluation is a one-on-one interview and the Psychiatrist, Physician, or Psychiatric PA will usually start by asking questions of the person being evaluated.  The assessment is often the first stage of a treatment process.  The assessment includes social and biographical information, direct observations, and may include data from specific psychological tests.

What is Medication Management?

Medication management is the monitoring of medications a patient takes to confirm that the patient is complying with a medication regimen, while also ensuring the patient is avoiding potentially dangerous drug interactions and other complications. This is especially important for patients taking large numbers of medications to address chronic illnesses and multiple diseases.
