About the Psychological Examination

Psychological Examination is an objective means of obtaining information about the patient's emotional, behavioral, and psychological functioning in order to provide effective treatment. Through assessment, specific problems can be identified (e.g., diagnosis) and a plan specifically designed for the patient can be determined. Finally, we can monitor the effectiveness of our treatment in terms of outcome.

Areas of the Examination

During the examination, we focus on three areas:

  1. Behaviors that may serve as potential treatment complications
  2. Aspects of the patient's clinical picture that may complicate treatment efforts
  3. Objective data that will determine what type of treatment the patient may need

This approach provides an opportunity for treatment considerations involving important elements in case management and treatment planning.
