Comprehesive Initial Evaluation
The initial visit takes about an hour and involves comprehensive assessment. It helps if all care providers/parents are present during initial evaluation as it provides a complete picture of the difficulties the patient is facing. Kindly bring with you to the appointment any copies of the prior psychiatric assessments including (but not limited to) neuropsychological testing, discharge summaries from hospital and recent medications. The assesment is followed by a thorough discussion of different treatment modalities available.
Follow Up visits
The duration and interval of follow up visits is dependent on the complexity and treatment needs of each individual patient.
Sometimes parents and other treatment providers like psychiatrist, psychologists and primary care physicians want a fresh look at the diagnosis and treatment. These evaluations are as comprehensive as initial evaluations and involve about an hour. It is recommended that copies of prior assessments, psychological testing, discharge summaries from hospital and recent medications be brought with you during the appointment.
