If you’re searching for a United Healthcare psychiatrist, look no further than Carolina Partners. Carolina Partners provides compassionate mental health care throughout North Carolina by offering quality psychiatric, psychological, and therapeutic services.
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, in order to get an overall picture of your life and to pinpoint the causes of your emotional distress. Your doctor’s questions might vary depending on what they observe and what you tell them. Sometimes, certain cognitive tests (like memory tests) are 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 your treatment. Once the doctor has made their determination, you 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.
