Getting Started:  To schedule an evaluation, we start with a brief 10 minute phone call to discuss your child’s specific needs. During this call, we will review basic mental health history and goals of treatment.  If an evaluation is scheduled, further details will be explained about setting up the patient portal and completing paperwork and consent forms that are required prior to treatment.  It is important that all paperwork be completed 24 hours prior to the evaluation.  You will have the opportunity to ask any questions at this time.  A credit card will be collected at the time of screening due to our Cancellation Policy.  (See attendance policy)

On the day of the evaluation, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the appointment.  The diagnostic evaluation is  conducted over 90 minutes.  Dr. Dorsky will first speak with everyone present as an introduction.  He will then meet with your child privately followed by parents.  The appointment will conclude with everyone reconvening to discuss diagnostic impressions, treatment plan, and to answer any questions.
