Psychiatric Assessments

We offer comprehensive psychiatric assessments and evaluations. Psychiatric evaluations, provided by our licensed psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners, are comprehensive evaluations that determine a diagnosis, treatment recommendations, and the need for medication.

A psychiatric assessment is the process of gathering information about a person with the purpose of making a diagnosis. The assessment is usually the first stage of the treatment process. The assessment includes social and biographical information, direct observations, and data from specific psychological tests. It is typically carried out by a psychiatrist, but it can be a multi-disciplinary process involving nurses, psychologists, occupational therapist, social workers, and licensed professional counselors.
