Your provider starts by taking a thorough medical and mental health history. They ask detailed questions about your current symptoms and concerns and how they affect your daily life.

Your provider may also administer a psychological evaluation that provides objective data about how you think, feel, and act. They may also order lab work to rule out a medical condition that might explain your symptoms.

Once they have all the information, your provider at Spero Psychiatry and Counseling makes a diagnosis and develops a treatment plan.

They talk to you about their findings and their treatment recommendations. Then, you work together to implement your plan. Your treatment might include psychotherapy, medication management, or both.
