On the day of the assessment:


  • We suggest you arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • Please bring identification to confirm your identity, as well as a list of your current medications.
  • You will be asked to complete an intake form, which is similar to what you will find when you click the button on the left.
  • You will then meet with the psychiatrist and their assistant.
  • You will be provided with an overview of the assessment process, at which point a consent form will be provided to you.
  • Your assessment can take up to two hours.
  • You will then be able to arrange for your own transportation after the assessment.
  • As this is an independent medical evaluation, there is no traditional doctor-patient relationship. You should not expect advice, treatment recommendations or follow-up from the assessing psychiatrist post-assessment.
  • A report will be sent to the referring agency.
