* The cost of the screening physical, labs and MRI is the responsibility of the client/family.
Our Admissions coordinators will listen to the issues causing concern and work with you to determine if our outpatient assessment will meet your needs or the needs of your child. Similarly, if a geriatrics assessment or evaluation is needed, our coordinators will help schedule it.
Assessments typically begin on Mondays and continue during the five-day work week. Assessments must be planned in advance through our Admissions staff.
Before arriving, we'll ask for clinical information on psychiatric, medical and psychosocial issues, which will help the team understand the client's history and goals for the assessment. This information will also enable the team to personalize the assessment even further by adding additional tests or evaluations by specialists as needed.
To complete a genetic profile, the client will need to submit a self-administered saliva sample several days before arriving at Menninger. Our staff will provide step-by-step instructions for this simple collection process.
