Successful treatment hinges on many elements but none more important than the communication process which allows for an exchange of information to guide treatment decisions. Patients returning to see Dr. Ravsten for a follow-up appointment can expect the following questions:

  • What improvement has occured with the disorder as a whole or with specific symptoms since your last visit?
  • What concerns or problems need to be addressed during todays visit?
  • Are you keeping track of the names and dosages of the medications prescribed to you?
  • How often do you miss or forget to take prescribed medications?
  • Are you having any physical, psychological or emotional changes that might be side effects?

Additionally, Dr. Ravsten will perform a focused symptom-based exam to complement the PHQ (Patient Health Questionnaire) that you are asked to complete prior to each appointment in order to more accurately gauge the level of illness in recent weeks and the associated disability.
