Adult Psychiatry Q&A

What is adult psychiatry?

Adult psychiatry is an area of medicine that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing conditions that affect an adult’s mental and emotional well-being. 

Mental health conditions affect people of all ages. However, most people first experience signs and symptoms of a mental health problem when they’re adults. 

Strategies for Success is a full-service psychiatric clinic that provides services to adults of all ages. It has a diverse group of providers to better serve the needs of the community. That includes adult psychiatry services in Spanish. 

The practice also offers telemedicine appointments for adult psychiatry. That allows you and your provider to schedule appointments at a time and place more convenient for you, including evening and weekend appointments.

What can I expect during an adult psychiatry consultation?

You can expect a comprehensive exam when you visit Strategies for Success for an adult psychiatry consultation. During the initial visit, your provider asks detailed questions about your physical, mental, and emotional well-being, as well as your symptoms and concerns.

They conduct a physical exam and perform psychological testing to better understand the underlying cause of your symptoms. Testing also helps your psychiatrist determine the right diagnosis so they can develop the most effective treatment plan. 

Your provider may request you complete lab work prior to your initial visit so they can fully assess your health and rule out any underlying medical conditions that might explain your symptoms. 

Strategies for Success also uses advanced lab testing, evaluating your DNA to look for environmental or physiological factors that might explain your symptoms and to help find the right psychotropic medication that fits your DNA type. 

After the consultation, your provider talks to you about your treatment needs, which may include psychotherapy, prescription medication, or both.
