These are just some of the areas in which working with a licensed professional can be beneficial. If you think you or a loved one would benefit from working with a psychiatrist, please reach out to our office today at 919-929-9610. You can also search our specialists, and look for a child psychiatrist in particular, here at our online portal. While using our search to find the specialist right for you, you can set your search parameters based on whether or not a psychiatrist is accepting new patients, desired location, age range, accepted insurances, specialty areas, and more.
Our Approach the Child Psychiatric Care
At Carolina Partners, our services include both psychiatric evaluations and medication management. A psychiatric evaluation is not a therapy appointment – think of it as “pre-therapy.” During the evaluation, a doctor will sit down and talk with you and your child in order to get an overall picture of what might be going on. They will be looking to pinpoint the causes of any emotional distress. Sometimes, certain cognitive tests (like memory tests) may be used to rule out physical damage to the brain, and sometimes more lab tests might be required before any sort of decision can be made about the best course of treatment. Once the doctor has made their determination, you and your family will be referred to the appropriate provider – whether that be a therapist for further conversation, a neuropsychiatrist for the various forms of cognitive treatment we offer, or a psychiatrist for prescribing medication.
In addition to offering quality care, we’ve worked hard to make getting your care as convenient and accessible as possible. With Carolina Partners Direct Care Telehealth app, which you can download on your smartphone or tablet, some psychiatric evaluations can now be done online. Additionally, Direct Care can now help you assist with routine follow-ups, and aid you and your provider with medication management. Just download the free app, and you can connect with your practitioner if you have any questions or concerns about medication refills, dosages, or side-effects.
