Psychiatric medications are closely monitored and adjusted based on presentation of symptoms while attempting to minimize side effects. We typically do 25 minute medication checks. This allows us to take the time to get to know you and make sure we're making the best choice possible regarding interventions. Working together to find the best medications requires a collaborative effort and exploration of past and current issues regarding medications, compliance, and family history. We are available between appointments via email to adjust medication when necessary in order to prevent discontinuation and crises. Our personalized approach to medication management is what makes us unique in our community.Laboratory tests are ordered when applicable. Appropriate referrals are given when necessary to medical specialists to ensure your overall health and well being. You may be referred to counseling or psychological testing if needed to ensure a comprehensive evaluation and treatment.
