Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation
A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is needed to diagnose emotional, behavioral or developmental disorders
We, at the American center for neuropsychiatry strongly believe that a thorough Psychiatric diagnostic evaluation is crucial in developing a successful treatment plan by our expert physician.Our diagnostic evaluation is based upon Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5) published by the American Psychiatric Association.
An evaluation of an adult, adolescent or child is made based on behaviors present and in relation to physical, social , environmental, genetic, cognitive, emotional and educational components that may be affected as a result of these behaviors.
