Through the Consultation and Second Opinion Service, patients have access to experts in schizophrenia for individual consultations or second opinions, regardless of where they are receiving their primary treatment.
We perform all consultations in person with the patient and family members or with family members alone if the patient is unable or unwilling to participate.
Our team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and other specialists offer general and specialty consultations for:
We are only able to accept patients who are referred by their MGH provider (primary care doctor, specialist, or psychologist) for consultation. Providers may contact 617-724-7792 to request a second opinion consultation.
First-episode consultations are specialized evaluations for patients who are experiencing psychosis for the first time or who have recently been diagnosed with a psychotic disorder.
During a first-episode consultation, one of our physicians will interview the patient and family members to thoroughly understand the symptoms and difficulties that led to the psychiatric hospitalization or other life disruption.
After the interviews, we will detail our findings in a comprehensive report which will be shared with the referring physician.
Our wellness consultation evaluates a patient's psychiatric symptoms, current treatment regimen and health behaviors (like fitness, smoking status and substance abuse) so we can make treatment recommendations to improve overall health and well-being.
Because certain antipsychotic medications are linked to an increased risk of developing diabetes and obesity, we monitor disease factors and focus on healthy lifestyle behaviors to help prevent future health problems.
After the wellness consultation, we may recommend participation in Mass General programs for weight loss, and smoking cessation.
