Psychiatry and Psychology Services in Sarasota and Lakewood RanchWhat Can I Expect In My First Session?

Initial Diagnostic Evaluations: Dr. Files-Hall, Dr. Lirio, and Dr. LaCivita are well skilled at evaluating behaviors, experiences and prior assessments. The initial intake appointment provides the doctor with the information necessary to begin understanding the nature of a problem and to begin to provide a preliminary plan for change. The treatment plan is further refined as we continue to learn about our clients with each subsequent visit.
