How do I schedule an appointment?
Please call our office at 609-890-8844 to schedule an appointment. If calling after regular business hours please leave a detailed message including your name and phone number. Alternatively, you can submit your contact information to “Make a Referral” and our office will contact you to schedule an appointment.
How do I prepare for the evaluation?
Please make sure the examinee or client gets a full night’s rest before the evaluation day. Please make sure to have the examinee or client bring glasses, hearing aids, lumbar supports, or anything else needed to assist a maximally productive evaluation process. Please bring a lunch (we have a refrigerator and a microwave if needed). You are also encouraged to bring water and light snacks. It is very important that you bring an accurate and precise medication list of current medication you or your child is taking, including dosages, times per day, milligrams, method of administration, and so forth. Adults and children should take their medication as regularly scheduled unless we make specific changes through your doctor for evaluative purposes. Medical, school, and other records are often critically important to the evaluation process and will be discussed in the initial consultation phone call as to what is needed in your particular case. Please let us know if you have any special accommodation needs such as light sensitivity, vision impairment, motor impairment, etc.
How long does an evaluation take?
The evaluation can vary in length depending on the referral question, whether the case is clinical or forensic, child or adult, and so forth. The evaluation for young children is typically broken into two to three partial days. Typically the length of face-to-face time necessary for the evaluation will be determined in the initial telephone consultation.
What happens after the evaluations?
For clinical cases, we typically schedule a feedback session for the patient and/or family members (as appropriate).
For forensic evaluations, a report is submitted to the requesting referral source. In some instances, such as plaintiff evaluations, feedback may be given directly to the examinee with the approval of the referral source.
What if I am unsure of the type of evaluation I need?
We are happy to help! Please call our office for a brief consultation with Dr. Mack or a covering clinician to determine the type of evaluation that may be needed in your particular case.
What is the Payment Process?
This is arranged beforehand with the office during the initial phone consultation.
