The first appointment with a psychiatrist can be overwhelming. We have provided a blog that provides tips for assisting you to prepare and know what to expect at your first appointment. This blog provides important tips, such as preparing a list of questions that you may wish to ask your psychiatrist and your expectation for your psychiatrist reaching a diagnosis. 

Overview of your psychiatry consults 

  1. At your first appointment, your psychiatrist will listen to your concerns, discussing the reasons behind your referral.
  2. Your psychiatrist will also ask you questions about your general health. It is therefore important to have your current list of medication, including any psychiatric as well as other medications.
  3. Your psychiatrist may order some tests e.g. blood test or an imaging.
  4. Another area of that is important to your psychiatrist for discussion is your family history.
  5. You may also wish to come along with a companion. Your companion needs to be someone close to you that you know well and has your trust.

Dr Mohsen Mohseni-Goki

Dr Mohsen Mohseni Goki is a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (FRANZCP) and a member of the Australasian ADHD Professionals Association (AADPA). With over 12 years of experience as a consultant psychiatrist, he specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). He assesses ADHD patients ranging in age from 16 to 60 years old.

Assessing and treating ADHD can be a complex process that requires a clear understanding of the individual’s symptoms and behaviors. When a patient is struggling with drug or alcohol use, including medicinal cannabis, it complicates the assessment because these substances can mimic or mask the symptoms of ADHD. This makes it difficult to accurately diagnose and provide effective treatment.

If you are using substances regularly, such as cannabis (even medicinal cannabis), alcohol, or other drugs, it is crucial to address these issues first. The presence of these substances in your system can interfere with both the assessment and the treatment of ADHD. Therefore, Dr Goki strongly recommends seeking treatment for substance use before undergoing an ADHD evaluation.

Once you have successfully ceased substance use, Dr Goki will be able to provide a more reliable assessment and determine the appropriate treatment for ADHD. This approach ensures that the diagnosis is accurate and the treatment is safe and effective.

Please understand that Dr Goki’s goal is to offer the best possible care, and addressing substance use issues first is a necessary step in achieving that. 

Support for drug and alcohol issues is available through drug and alcohol services. Once you are ready, we can proceed with a thorough and accurate assessment of ADHD and discuss the best treatment options for you.
