How does this service work?
A patient's primary care provider determine that psychosocial factors may be causing the patient's presenting complaints or are adversely impacting response to treatment. During the patient's visit, the primary care provider sets up a meeting with the Behavioral Health Consultant for assessment and intervention, if needed.
