Getting Started

Your initial session(s) will involve an evaluation of your needs. By the end of the comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, I will be able to offer you some first impressions about indication for medication and any other treatment options. Should you decide to continue with my services, then we will work together to create a plan of care.

If you ever have questions about medication or plan-of-care, please feel free to discuss them whenever they arise. If your doubts persist, I will be happy to help you set up a meeting with another professional for a second opinion.

No-Shows and
Late Cancelations
