What to Expect

The clinic schedules one-time visit to provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, second opinions, and consultations. This clinic is a teaching setting for psychiatry resident physicians who are supervised by experienced faculty members in the Anxiety Disorders Program.

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. Please send it back to us ahead of your appointment.

Your first visit will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. We will ask you to check in at 1:30 PM, when you will be registered in the clinic. At 2:00 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 an hour to an hour and a half. Then one of the anxiety disorders specialist faculty members will meet with you. This meeting usually takes 30 minutes to an hour. The faculty member and resident physician will then provide you with their opinion regarding a diagnosis and recommendations for treatment. Expect to finish by about 5 PM.

After your evaluation, we will write a comprehensive patient evaluation report that summarizes your history, our impressions and diagnostic formulation, and our recommendations. With your permission, we will send a detailed summary of our opinions and recommendations to your physician or caregivers of your choice. This will also be kept on file at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where it can be requested at a later date if you require another copy.

We do not provide longitudinal care here, but in some few cases may be able to recommend providers accessible to you. If space is available, we may recommend seeking care in our resident clinic. Depending on your location, we may be able to refer you to qualified caregivers near your home. This is often not possible, but we hope to help when we can.
