Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Evaluation
A typical evaluation in our practice takes two to four hours and includes separate interviews with the parents and child, along with ample time for discussion of diagnostic impressions and treatment options. New patients are usually seen within 7-14 days of a family’s initial contact.
Dr. Grcevich takes a conservative, evidence-based approach to prescribing medication for children and teens. His goal is to use as little medication as possible for as short a period as possible. When appropriate, he is open to “de-prescribing” – the thoughtful and deliberate process of discontinuing or reducing the dose of medications that may no longer be of benefit or eliminating medication that may be exacerbating a child’s emotional or behavioral issues.
