At Luxmed Behavioral Health we are committed to keeping you happy and healthy. Our goal is to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms and help empower you to find effective tools so that you can be yourself again. We specialize in helping our patients reduce or stop using medications.
If acute stabilization is needed, we may refer you to another specialist or treatment center for more intensive management.
COMPREHENSIVE PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION
All new patients will undergo an initial evaluation (intake) in order to formulate a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan. During this first appointment, we will explore your reasons for seeking treatment and discuss your background psychiatric and medical history. We will assess various aspects of your health, including medications, diet and digestion, exercise, substance use, family history and relationships, occupation, and spiritual beliefs. In addition, we will review any lab tests including blood work that you may have had done. When appropriate, we may also consult with other clinicians on your treatment team. Based on our thorough evaluation, we will provide you with feedback and will collaborate with you to formulate an individually tailored treatment plan to address the biological, psychological, and social aspects of your health.
CONSULTATIVE EVALUATION (SECOND OPINION)
These appointments are for you to obtain a comprehensive “second-opinion” regarding your current diagnosis and treatment plan. In this service, we function as consultants to your current mental health treatment. If you opt to make use of this service, you will be expected to maintain your primary prescription and treatment through a psychiatrist and/or a primary care clinician. Please be advised that Luxmed Behavioral Health does not offer disability or forensic evaluations.
GENETIC TESTING CONSULTATION SERVICES
At Luxmed Behavioral Health, we offer personalized cutting edge pharmacogenomic testing utilizing GeneSight labs that analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. The results of the test can inform you and your doctor about genes that may impact how you metabolize or respond to certain medications. The genetic testing consultation service consists of two appointments. During the initial consultation, Dr. Jasinski will conduct a thorough assessment of your medication treatment history, go over any medication concerns, analyze your individual response to medications, and collect a DNA sample which will be sent to GeneSight lab. As part of the second visit, the results from GeneSight lab will be reviewed with a detailed explanation of your test results. A customized medication treatment plan based on your genetic information will discussed. Schedule this service today. The fee for genetic testing consultation and evaluation is $350 and is not covered by insurance. The GeneSight lab charge is separate and may be partially or fully covered by your insurance company. For further information please view GeneSight lab costs.
In these visits, we will check in about your progress, evaluate response to treatment, review new test results, make adjustments to the treatment plan, or work on brief, focused psychotherapy.
