A psychiatric evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of your life. A review of medical/surgical history, past psychiatric history, family history, social history and past treatment are included, as well as evaluation of other aspects of your life. This in-depth information helps me to understand you so that I can provide the best treatment for your concerns.
Sometimes medication is needed as part of your comprehensive treatment plan. As a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, I am licensed to prescribe medication. I am very conservative with medication and will work with you to find what works best for you.
