New Patient Information
It takes a lot of courage and initiative to reach out for psychiatric help. We strive to make the intake process as smooth as possible for our new patients.
In order to best understand your needs, we require all new patients to go through an assessment before they can begin making regular appointments for therapy or medication management.
See the information below to view our initial assessment options, accepted insurances, & pre-appointment paperwork.
If you are looking to talk with a therapist about psychotherapy, this is the option for you.
The psychosocial evaluation is used to obtain patient background information to determine a possible diagnosis and tailor a treatment plan.
If you are interested in medication, this is the right option for you.
The medication evaluation is used to determine what kinds of medications could be appropriate for a patient’s needs.
Note, a medication evaluation doesn't promise a prescription.
Which assessment is right for you?
If you are not sure which type of assessment may be best for you, don't worry. We encourage you to do both assessments, as studies have shown that both medication and therapy used together can have highly effective outcomes.
Our Care Coordinators are available during our business hours to discuss assessment options with you. Give us a call!
Professional Psychiatric Services is in-network with most major insurance providers and we can often work with other insurers on an out-of-network basis. We also have self-pay options for those without insurance.
Please call your insurance provider to verify your behavioral/mental health coverage & to ensure PPS is a covered provider.
