The initial adult psychiatry evaluation takes place in either a 45 min session or 1.5 hour session depending on your preference and schedule availability.

In the initial adolescent psychiatry evaluation (12+ years old) practitioners typically first speak to the teen and then to the parents.

In the initial child appointment  practitioners typically meet with the parents, in the second session with your child, and in the third session we speak about any findings and make a plan for how to best help your child.

Whether you are interested in psychotherapy, psychopharmacology or integrative medicine, the initial evaluation allows for a thorough evaluation of past and present issues so that we can create a good treatment plan.

What can I expect when I come for the initial appointment?

Please ring the bell and you will be buzzed into the office waiting area. Please have a seat and your clinician will come out to greet you at the time of your appointment. Your clinician will meet with you for the initial interview, collect and review any prior records or forms you bring, and go over practice policies. In the initial interview you will have the opportunity to describe your current concerns and your prior health and treatment history.

Can I use my insurance?

Dr. Lewis, does not participate in any insurance as an in-network provider. We do work with most out-of-network plans. If you have out of network benefits with your insurance we will help you to file for reimbursement with your insurance. Please call your insurance company to check

  • Do I have out-of-network benefits for mental health?
  • Do I have a deductible for mental health services?
  • At what rate will I be reimbursed for mental health services (the usual range is 50% to 80%)?

We can support you in this process, and are available to answer your insurance-related questions to the best of our ability.
