What to Expect

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

  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.
