Psychopharmacology Assessment Clinic

This clinic provides second opinion consultations about medication management for individuals already in treatment with another physician. The referring clinician will be asked to submit clinical information using a standardized form (sent to the clinician) prior to the patient’s consultation appointment at Langley Porter.


A 90-minute consultation is provided.  Patients are interviewed by a third-year psychiatric resident and a senior faculty member and clinical information sent by the referring physician will be reviewed.  If indicated, a follow-up second outpatient appointment is scheduled. After the consultation, a letter is sent to the referring clinician outlining the clinic’s assessment and recommendations.
