All treatment begins with a thorough diagnostic assessment. This is typically a 50-60 minute interview during which the doctor will review and assess the patient's condition and symptoms. A complete medical history is recorded. The doctor will also collect additional information including family history, psycho-social and developmental history, and substance use history. When indicated the doctor may order lab work and/or imaging, request medical records, and gather collateral information from family or friends. The diagnostic assessment is completed during the initial office visit. At the conclusion of the assessment the doctor will discuss the diagnoses and treatment options.
Medication Management appointments are brief appointments lasting 10-20 minutes. During these appointment the doctor will review and assess that patient's response to medications as well as any potential side effects and other medical factors that may be related. Brief supportive therapy is included in this type of visit. Also the doctor may briefly discuss behavior modification and recommendations for psychotherapy.
