We have two Anxiety Disorders clinics — one at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and another at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Both are staffed by faculty and clinicians to provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, second opinions, consultations, or ongoing treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy and medications. The clinic at The Johns Hopkins Hospital is a teaching setting for psychiatry resident physicians who are supervised by senior faculty in the Anxiety Disorders Program.
What to Expect
Before coming to the clinic for the first time, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire detailing your symptoms and medical and psychiatric history. Bring this information to the clinic on the day of your visit. Your first visit will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. We will ask you to check in at 12:30 PM, when you will be registered at the clinic. At 1:00 PM, you will meet with a psychiatry resident physician who will review your history and obtain more details about your anxiety. This meeting usually takes between an hour to an hour and a half. Then one of the senior faculty members, who is an anxiety disorders specialist, will meet with you. This meeting usually takes thrity minutes to an hour. The faculty member and resident physician will then provide you with their opinion regarding a diagnosis and recommendations for treatment.
You may choose to be treated at The Johns Hopkins Hospital or The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, to be referred to qualified caregivers near your home, or to have a detailed summary of our opinions and recommendations sent to your physician. Regardless of your preference for continuing care, we will write a comprehensive patient evaluation report that summarizes your history, our impressions, and our recommendations. This can be sent to the caregivers of your choice, and will be kept on file at the The Johns Hopkins Hospital, should you decide to seek further treatment here.
You will need to call your insurance plan to determine your mental health benefits. The Anxiety Disorders Program has agreements with the insurance plans and programs listed below. If you are not enrolled in one of these plans, we will provide you with a receipt following your appointment, which you may send to your insurance plan. Please contact us for a fee schedule if your insurance plan is not listed below. When copayments apply, they are expected at the time of service.
