What happens in a psychiatrist consultation?


Your first visit with any healthcare provider including our board-certified psychiatrist will always be the longest. This intake appointment is when you will have all of your information including assessment and any questions answered to help determine a diagnosis.
 
Once all of the paperwork and information that is needed has been completed, the psychiatrist will want to continue conversations with you; this is a means for the psychiatrist to get to know you better while coming to understand why you are seeking treatment from a psychiatrist in the first place. There will be many questions to answer, and a time for you to ask questions if you’d like.
 
If you do not feel comfortable having a conversation 1-on-1, we understand if you would prefer to bring someone that makes you feel more at ease to the consultation appointment. In the end, this time is about you, and helping you.

What is a psychiatry consultation?


Psychiatric consultations are a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s psychological, biological, medical, and social causes of emotional distress that they are dealing with.
 
During a psychiatric consultation, we see where we can help you understand the source of your problems from various points of view including:
 
Biologically
This will include heredity, hormones, nutrition, and physical illness.
 
Psychologically
This will include any current life stressors and childhood experiences.
 
Socially
This will include any cultural differences you may be going through, family relationships, and prejudice.
 
At Success Health System LLC, we will review your current stressors, any past medical information that may be useful, any psychiatric conditions, necessary medical records, and lab tests to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan.

How do I prepare for a psychiatric appointment?


First, make sure you have any previous medical and psychiatric history readily available – this includes personal and family, you can do this by bringing:
 
• Complete list of medications you are taking, in addition to any psychiatric medications
• Complete list of any and all psychiatric medications you may have tried in the past, including the length in which you were taking them for
• Any medical concerns you may have as well as any diagnoses
• Your family history of psychiatric issues, if there is any
• Copy of your previous psychiatrist records or have your previous office forward them to us if you have seen a psychiatrist in the past
 
Be prepared to answer some questions the psychiatrist may have in regard to your health, they may ask them in a variety of ways, but essentially, they are trying to figure out why they have booked with them today for a session.
 
During your session, you may experience many different emotions, and it’s okay. You may feel the need to cry, be mad, or even be uncomfortable when discussing your concerns; however, you may feel that it is completely normal and fine to feel emotions. Being open and sharing your concerns, stories, etc. will help the psychiatrist get a better understanding of how to help you.
 
In the end, we will work together as a team to create a plan for our future. A treatment plan for each individual will be different based on the reasons they are visiting the psychiatrist, what the psychiatrist is noticing during the appointment, and any information you disclosed at the start of the appointment, these options may include:
 
• Medication
• Level of care you may need
• Recommended lab tests or procedures

What is the difference between a Therapist, Psychologist, and Psychiatrist?


Psychiatrists are medical professionals like doctors who may prescribe medication to their patients. They focus on their patient’s body and mind together and usually treat patients with a combination of medication, prescriptions, and management.
 
Psychologists study the individual’s behavior and mental processes. They help their patients understand and handle different life problems and mental health issues they may be struggling with by diagnosing and treating mental health disorders, learning disabilities, and behavioral issues.
 
Therapists have a master’s degree and usually provide mental health diagnoses while creating treatment plans for their patients. Unlike psychiatrists, therapists cannot prescribe medication to their patients but instead can refer their patients to a psychiatrist for an evaluation for a prescription for medication and other treatments.

When to visit a psychiatrist?


If you are dealing with any of the below, now is a good time to visit one of our psychiatrists at Success Health System LLC.
 
• If you have any thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that are out of control, especially if they are affecting your relationships with your friends, family, spouse, etc.
• Struggling to deal with life’s challenges like a major illness, loss of a loved one, divorce, or even job loss or issues.
• Using alcohol and drugs to the point it’s beginning to interfere with your health, emotions, relationships, job, and ability to function and complete day-to-day tasks.
• Confused, fraught with emotions, and needing the unbiased perspective of someone to help.
• Feeling like life is not worth living for, feeling hopeless, or feeling of reaching the end of your rope.
