We are available on a limited basis for one-time consultations for patients and their providers desiring evaluation and treatment recommendations. A consultation appointment lasts about 2 hours and includes a review of psychiatric records and a comprehensive report which is faxed to the referring provider. Patients are encouraged to bring a family member or significant other to evaluations.
