How will a psychiatrist near me work with patients?
At Carolina Partners, a psychiatric evaluation is not a therapy appointment – think of it as pre-therapy! Your doctor will sit down and talk with you to get an overall picture of your life, and pinpoint the causes of your emotional distress. Your doctor’s questions will vary, depending on what the doctors observe and what you tell them. Sometimes, certain cognitive tests, like memory tests, may be used to rule out physical damage to the brain. Occasionally, more lab tests might be required before any decision can be made about treatment. Once the doctor has made their determination, they will refer you 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.
