Diagnostics psychiatry and psychotherapy
During our comprehensive first psychiatric examination, we discuss all symptoms, the psychiatric and general physical medical history as well as social and family stress.
An optional examination is laboratory diagnostics, testing the blood values (liver, kidney, vitamins/esp. B12, folic acid, hormones/esp. thyroid). Testing serum levels is indicated in case of psychopharmacological treatment.
In order to rule any organic changes of the brain, electrophysiological examinations like EEG (electroencephalography) and/or MRI can be carried out. Additionally, ECG examinations can take place.
Psychological instruments (interviews) can help gather symptoms and personality traits more objectively and more detailed in terms of changes.
