Psychological Assessment Unit

Psychological Assessment Unit
Our psychological assessment unit is available to physicians, universities, schools and the general public to help them achieve their goals. With an estimated 900 children, students and adults assessed each year, it is the largest assessment unit of its kind in the area. Psychological evaluations provide a more complete understanding of the patient. This understanding can help inform others to make appropriate decisions. Our psychologists have all received the highly specialized academic and professional training required to administer and interpret the psychological tests.
