Your First Appointment

The Evaluation

The first appointment involves a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, and usually lasts 50-60 minutes or longer.

Dr. Mankey will discuss your concerns and related issues in detail, and gather a significant amount of related history.  Psychiatric/psychological questionnaires may be used in some circumstances to further inquire about your concerns.  

Dr. Mankey considers each case in a multifaceted way, and appreciates the various biological, psychological, and social factors that may contribute to your challenges.  He will discuss his understanding and impressions with you, and together, you will consider the best treatment options and devise a personalized plan for reaching your goals. 

Treatment may include a variety of therapies and/or medications.

Simple medication management appointments can be 30 minutes if desired and clinically appropriate.  Dr. Mankey strives to use medications judiciously in order to maximize benefit and minimize side effects.

Therapy sessions without medication management also typically last 45-50 minutes. 

Dr. Mankey has been trained in a number of therapeutic styles, some of which include: psychodynamic psychotherapy, cogntive behavioral therapy (CBT), supportive therapy, family therapy, group therapy, etc.  He customizes the therapy sessions, often blending these various modalities, to address your concerns effectively in a style that fits with your preferences.
