In clinical evaluations, we assess the mental, emotional, and/or intellectual health of the patient. These evaluations can require several hours depending on the objective. The methodology used includes clinical interviews, revision of prior testing, clinical observations, and administration of psychological tests. Several professionals from the team, Psychologists and Psychiatrists, may participate in a given evaluation.
