The initial consultation is typically a 60-90 minute appointment. During this time, we determine if the services offered at Tucson Outpatient Psychiatry are the right fit for you. It is important that you and your psychiatrist or therapist are on the same page when it comes to your health and well-being. This consultation time will give us an opportunity to identify your needs and goals. It does not establish a patient-doctor/client-therapist relationship unless we mutually agree on a treatment plan. If Tucson Outpatient Psychiatry is not the best fit for you, be assured that you will be provided with alternative resources in local area.
