A psychiatric evaluation is a comprehensive psychiatric examination. Our evaluations aim to clear diagnosis and individualistic treatment plans. Our Psychiatrist will determine what information to use based on the formal test results. It may be used to diagnose problems with memory, thought processes, and behaviors. Diagnoses can include depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and addiction. During the initial diagnostic evaluation, your provider will ask about your present symptoms in the context of your psychiatric, substance use, personal, family, and social history.
