Consultation and Evaluation
Our goal is to provide a welcoming patient- and family-centered environment that offers help and support to individuals, couples and their families. Adults in relationships are ordinarily evaluated as a couple, when appropriate. Children and adolescents are typically accompanied by their parents. Separate interviews are conducted with children and parents. Patients from agencies should be accompanied by an informant.
Evaluations at The Johns Hopkins Hospital occur on Friday afternoons from 12:45 to 5 p.m. Patients complete several self-reported inventories and are interviewed to obtain complete medical, social, psychiatric and sexual histories. Physical examinations and blood tests may be performed when indicated.
All referral, evaluation and treatment records are held in the strictest confidence and released only with written consent of the patient(s). Couples are interviewed together and in confidential individual meetings. We obey all legal mandatory reporting requirements.
Initial evaluations at the SBCU occur in room 144 of the Meyer Building at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Evaluation requests should be directed to the office of Fred Berlin (phone: 410-539-1661).Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit (SBCU)
