Clinical Trials and Community Health
As part of an academic medical institution we are equally committed to the pursuit of excellence in basic, clinical and translational research initiatives related to mental illness.
Baylor Medicine Psychiatry is also actively involved in the community, offering screening programs for depression, anxiety and eating disorders, as well as support groups for grief and loss, post-divorce problems and other mental health issues. In addition, the clinic provides speakers to address mental health topics of interest to community groups.
Psychiatry Patient Information
Fees. Some forms of insurance are accepted for many of our services. A copy of your insurance card is required at the first visit. Those with out-of-network benefits are required to pay for the visit and file a claim on their own. In some instances an income based sliding scale fee is available. Co-payments and unreimbursable balances are due at each visit and payable by check, cash or credit card.
Evaluation. A psychological/psychiatric evaluation may require between one and three visits. The evaluation process includes an initial telephone interview, a psychiatric interview and, as needed, psychological testing.
