The Experience of Getting an Evaluation
Hi, this is Dr. Ned Hallowell.
I want to describe what it’s like to come to my office in Sudbury, MA.
First of all, I want you to know it is a very low stress, high warmth experience. Everything we do at my center is aimed at helping our clients feel comfortable and at ease. We want you to leave feeling much more upbeat and de-stressed than you may have been when you arrived.
Our offices, located at 144 North Road, Suite 2450 are spacious, high-ceilinged, and painted in warm earthy tones. Environment matters! You will find our staff to be young, personable, and relaxed. They can laugh! They smile! They are not your typical waiting room medical personnel.
The evaluation itself will start by your telling your story to one of our clinicians, maybe me, maybe one of the other excellent professionals who work with me. This is the most important part of the process. We want to hear about your life, what you’re happy with, what you want to change, what you’re uncertain of, what your hopes and dreams might be, as well as your fears. We want to connect with you. This is our top priority. Then we might recommend some neuropsychological tests. These are fun to take. Puzzles, games, mazes, that sort of thing. Nothing uncomfortable. Just tests we use to get an understanding of how you learn.
After that, we will write up a report and deliver that to you as soon as we can. You’ll have a wrap-up session with the clinician who met with you at the start, and develop a plan for what to do next.
That’s it. I predict you will find the experience to be enlightening and enjoyable. You’ll learn about yourself in ways that can only lead to positive changes. And you will feel relieved by what you’ll learn. We’re in the good news business. I think of myself as a specialist not in treating disabilities but in unwrapping gifts.
If you have any questions, please give us a call- 978-287-0810. Or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting you!
