Prior to the evaluation appointments, you will receive a call from either Dr. Khan or Dr. Chen who will provide a quick, free phone consultation. based on this, they will select the ideal psychiatric nurse practitioner to evaluate and work directly with you or your loved one. Throughout the process, the nurse practitioner will regularly collaborate with Drs. Khan and Chen, conveying to them observations and pertinent clinical data. At the end of the evaluation process, the psychiatric nurse practitioner will inform the patient (and/or family) of the patient’s diagnoses, treatment options and recommendations.
Drs. Khan and Chen play a close role in the evaluation process. If needed, the patient can be transitioned seamlessly to one of them if it is a better fit. This isn't common and happens approximately one out every 45 cases and the patient does not need to undergo another evaluation process in this instance.
If the patient ends up maintaining their care with us, they typically are under the direct care of their respective psychiatric nurse practitioner, all while being overseen by Drs. Khan and Chen.
