To schedule an appointment call the office at (609) 419-0123. Our helpful staff will be happy to accommodate your request.
For a new patient seeking an evaluation appointment, we ask that the patient complete a series of psychiatric and medical history forms, which consists of several different sets of questions depending on the patient's or referring clinician's particular concerns. These scales aid the clinical staff in determining the type and severity of the clinical difficulty that the patient is experiencing.
These scales are email ahead of time and requested to be returned a few days before the appointment.
After reviewing the completed scales, the clinician will meet with the patient for 50 to 60 minutes. During this interview the patient will share their psychiatric history and current symptoms and concerns. There may additional screens or tests if clinically necessary. Next, the clinician will make a diagnosis and offer a treatment plan. Fees for services are reviewed when appointments are scheduled.
If the appointment is for a minor, the initial visit consists of two separate appointments. The first appointment is with the parent or legal guardian for 25 minutes. The second appointment is initially with the minor alone followed with the parent joining, lasting for 50 o 60 minutes.
