Psychological Evaluations

When should treating doctors refer out for psychological or neuropsychological evaluation?
Formal psychological / neuropsychological testing & evaluation services can be helpful in the differential diagnosis of mental health conditions when patient history & symptoms are inconsistent as to diagnosis, or if multiple diagnostic possibilities compete, overlap, & cloud the clinical picture.

Formal evaluations can be helpful in developing effective treatment plans when patients have been tried on various medications / psychotherapy, but have still not progressed in treatment, have regressed, continue to be symptomatic, or show variable & changing symptoms during treatment.

In patients with known medical, physical, neurological or other complicating conditions, formal evaluations may benefit both patient and provider in making well-informed decisions regarding treatment.

When dementia-like, or other related symptoms raise issues of competency & level of care needs.

Formal evaluations also help provide good practice risk management.
