What can I expect on my first visit?

  • When you arrive at the clinic for your first psychiatry appointment, our front desk staff will check you in and make sure we have received all required forms prior to your appointment. Any uncompleted or additional forms will need to be completed at this time.
  • Your psychiatric provider will spend up to one hour with you discussing your medical, social, family and mental health history, current medications, and treatment goals. This is much of the same information included in our required paperwork. After your appointment, you will meet with a Patient Care Coordinator to review the visit and schedule your next follow-up appointment.
  • Please note that your psychiatric provider will be focused primarily on the medication management portion of your mental health care. If you are looking for talk therapy, our registration staff would also be happy to schedule you with a therapist or other desired services we offer.
