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 Psychiatry Hospital & Clinics. Owen Wolkowitz, MD, is the program director.
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.
For an appointment please call our intake and referral service at (415) 476-7500 or toll-free at (800) 723-7140.
