Our initial meeting in person will involve meeting and talking about your past and current emotional symptoms, behavioral symptoms, medical symptoms, family history, personal history, school and work concerns, concerns with relationships, looking at strengths and weaknesses. We may need to gather more information from families members or schools. We may need you to complete questionnaires. All this information will be used to assess for a diagnosis and the treatment plan. We offer a holistic approach looking at medication and therapies with coping skills.
Follow up visits in the office will monitor progress, symptoms, response to treatment, need for adjustments. In some cases follow up visits can be performed via video conferencing "telepsychiatry." The patient would login to video conferencing software from their computer or cellphone which can be at home, or in the office and we can perform our visit that way.
**PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT PROVIDE custody evaluations, forensic evaluation, and disability evaluations
