You're in great hands

We make sure all our new patients feel welcome, safe, and taken care of.

What to expect during your first visit with us?

During your first visit, we will review your entire psychiatric, medical, social and family history in detail. This would also include detailed review of your current and past medications, their effects and side-effects along with any allergies that you may have experienced. A physical examination including checking of vital signs (BP, heart rate, weight) might be necessary at times. Based on this comprehensive review of past and current symptoms, a preliminary diagnosis would be made and a treatment plan would be devised. This treatment plan could include medications and psychotherapy as well as other modalities of treatment that might need referral to other professionals, including ordering labs and imaging.

Required paperwork- New Patient Form (This is an online electronic form. If you prefer a paper form, please click here). Please fill this and the additional forms (listed below) prior to your first visit to make it more efficient. 

This first appointment will also serve to establish a therapeutic relationship between you and your doctor based on mutual agreement. If either parties decide against it, we would make our best effort to refer you to someone else.
