Each initial encounter includes a comprehensive diagnostic interview with one of our highly skilled clinicians so that a unique treatment plan can be designed based on each individual client’s needs. This appointment includes a careful review of the client’s symptoms, previous medical or psychiatric concerns, current mental state, and background information. At the end of this interview, additional services may be recommended including testing, pharmacological consultation, or behavioral approaches.
North Shore Center provides comprehensive neuropsychological assessment service to clarify diagnosis and identify any behavioral, emotional, or social factors contributing to current challenges. Extensive treatment recommendations and comprehensive reports are provided in every assessment. North Shore Center specializes in assessment for special accommodations, including LSAT, ACT, SAT, MCAT, and GMAT examinations. Pediatric services are also available, including assessment of specific learning disorders and other neurodevelopmental concerns. We provide school consultation and can assist in identifying recommendations for an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
Pharmacological services are provided by our board certified psychiatrists and are available by appointment at each location. Each initial psychiatric consultation begins with a thorough review of the patient’s psychiatric, medical, and personal history. The goal of the initial consultation is to clarify diagnosis and determine if medication or other approaches would best facilitate patient care.
