A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is necessary for diagnostic assessment and treatment planning. An intensive and thorough assessment of the client is performed with review of clinical history, complete medical and treatment history, developmental, family, occupational and social history, mental status evaluation, relevant diagnostic psychological tests, cognitive tests. Relevant lab tests and neuroimaging may be additionally recommended. The aim of evaluation is to provide a clear and specific plan for treatment. A written report is provided to the client with recommendation for short term and long term treatment.
Sometimes psychiatry clients on treatment with partial recovery or treatment non responders or clients with unclear diagnosis want a fresh opinion. We offer second opinion consults for children, adolescents and adults. A brief psychiatric review or a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation may be planned to offer the client a definitive treatment plan to improve target symptoms. Second Opinion Consults include a review of client’s clinical history, treatment records and relevant psycholological tests.
