How long is an Initial Intake or Follow up Medication Management Appointment with one of Edgewood’s Psychiatrists?

Posted on: September 14, 2016

Our Psychiatric Staff generally spends 40-60 minutes with each adult for their intake appointment.  Initial appointments for children under 18 will take 60 minutes and should involve parent or caregivers.

Follow-up Medication Management Appointments are typically scheduled for 20 minutes each.  In some situations, the doctor may recommend a client returns for a 30 minute follow up appointment to allow more time for family interaction and discussion, review labs and reports requested during the initial appointment, or spend sufficient time evaluating a more complex medication change or adjustment.
