Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation

Initial evaluation Appointment

The first meeting will be 60-90 minutes long. A detailed face to face evaluation (approximately one hour) to determine individual psychiatric needs. This includes diagnosis, psychoeducation and medication management/therapy referral. We will review your history, past and present symptoms, and goals in treatment. This assessment is very detailed, so therefore completing your new patient forms via the online patient portal that you will have access to prior to your first appointment, is incredibly helpful. In addition, please fax, email, or bring along a copy of your most recent labs. You may have your primary care provider fax a copy to my office as well.

Many people have been misdiagnosed or misinformed about psychiatric illness and Mindview understands that an accurate diagnosis is the key to formulating a proper treatment plan. Mindview will also explore all possible etiologies of symptoms, including medical problems, substance use, personality/psychological issues, and environmental, as these require different treatments.
At the end of your evaluation, Mindview providers will educate you about your diagnosis and create a collaborative treatment plan. This may include further medical work up, including ordering blood work, imaging, psychological, neuropsychological, or genetic tests to help clarify the diagnosis or cause of symptoms. Possible treatments, including psychotherapy and psychotropic medications will be explained, including the possible risks and benefits of each treatment modality.
While we do not accept all insurance options, we can provide you with paperwork to submit to private insurance for possible reimbursement as an out-of-network provider.
