The Zirinsky Center offers unique evaluations that are conducted by our team of specialists to establish diagnosis and determine optimal treatment plan.
What to expect from an evaluation:
- Our evaluations are conducted by two Center clinicians – a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist.
- We ask that all our clients bring a treatment partner of their choosing to the evaluation. The treatment partner can be a parent, sibling, spouse and/or friend who knows the client well and is able to provide an additional perspective to the evaluating team.
- Prior to evaluation, patients and treatment partners are asked to fill out several questionnaires that will be assessed and scored to help guide clinical decisions.
- The evaluation takes place over the course of one 2-hour appointment
