Evaluations

 

PHS provides individualized psychiatric and psychological evaluations for professionals from a wide range of industries. Each evaluation is designed to answer a question or series of questions. The questions may be vague, "what is causing the decrease is work performance or memory problems?" Or the questions may be specific, "what is my mental health diagnosis" or "do I have an addiction?" Accordingly, we design the intensity and length of each evaluation to be able to accurately answer the specific questions of each individual case.
