Adult Psychiatric Evaluation & Medication Management

Recognizing that you or someone close to you has a problem with emotions or behavior can be difficult and painful.  EPIC offers an psychiatrist, specializing in adult care psychiatry.  Working with our psychiatrist offers individuals the opportunity for a diagnostic examination in order to evaluate the current needs.  Working with the client, the psychiatrist will determine the factors that play a role in the client’s difficulties.  They will then suggest strategies that can be helpful including talk therapy, further evaluations, and medication management.  Working with EPIC’s psychiatrist may be short-term, dealing with immediate issues, or long-term, dealing with longstanding and complex issues.

EPIC is committed to a person-centered practice approach that places our clients at the center of their own care resulting in a positive difference in health outcomes and client satisfaction.

Accommodations are available for persons who are disabled or deaf/hearing-impaired. For assistance, call 904-829-2273, x7016.
