WHAT SETS MEDICAL ASSESSMENT AGENCY APART AS A PRIVATE MEDICAL & PSYOCOLOGICAL SERVICE PROVIDER?

For some patients, prolonged or repeating periods of difficulty have become normal. They might be uncomfortable asking for support, feeling the need to put on a brave face and appear strong to others. They even may feel heightened levels of anxiety and chronic stress due to undiagnosed medical or mental health condition, sleep disorder or addiction. The patient may be seeking a second opinion to re-evaluate a long-standing but poorly managed medical or mental health condition, in order to find a more suitable treatment that can assist with the path to recovery. Alternatively the patient may have been managing well until everything fell apart dramatically and find themselves in a very frightening, overwhelming, difficult and painful place.

With our caring and bespoke service, one of our experts can provide you with a warm and comfortable environment for you to make sense of and take stock of your experiences, so that you feel reassured and have a greater sense of possibilities.

We pride ourselves on having the capability to provide an in-depth assessment and analyses, which you can trust and depend on. Give us a call now and we can help you to feel confident and bringing about real, lasting and beneficial change to your life.

Diagnosis – Patient’s initial assessment by a psychiatrist will typically last for about an hour. The psychiatrist will discuss the specific details of the Patient’s condition and explore possible associated issues, Patient’s medical and psychological history and other relevant details.

Treatment Plan – The psychiatrist will discuss the best options available to treat the patient’s condition which may include medication, follow-up appointments or referral to other specialists. The patient will be fully informed about each option and involved in this process so that they can understand the benefits of the options offered by the psychiatrist.

Follow-up Appointments – In some cases, the psychiatrist may wish to see the patient for follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of their treatment plan. These are shorter than the initial assessment, and can take place over the phone or video-chat, as well as face-to-face.

Referrals – The consultant may recommend a course of therapy or other specific treatment offered by mental health specialists.

If you don’t live in London but are looking for a private psychiatrist, it might still be worth getting in touch with us. We offer home/work place visits with flexible appointment times.

For some people it could be a daunting experience to request their initial assessment with a psychiatrist, and they might hold off until they’re confident that they have found the best psychiatrist. Our private mental health assessments come at a standard with the highest levels of confidentiality and professionalism.

Help is only a phone call away, here at Medical Assessment Agency we are experienced with all aspects of mental health assessment and are proud to provide a flexible and customised treatment option to suit your exact needs.

Our mental health specialists are available now to work with you at your convenience at home or work. To get advice and guidance towards booking your first psychiatric assessment give our team a call and we will be happy to help you.
