Psychological Testing

Psychological testing and/or assessments are the first steps in the psychological care process. In a way, they’re actually very similar to medical tests.

If, for instance, you go to your primary care physician with a medical problem, the doctor will conduct a physical exam. He or she may also order X-rays or a blood test. Based on the results of those tests, the doctor will create a treatment plan for you.

Psychological evaluations are used in the same way. Tests and other assessment tools help your Psychiatric Associates provider make a diagnosis so he or she can develop a plan for your treatment.
