Pre-Assessment Questionnaire

In order to determine if we are a good fit, we ask that you review the first section of our Pre-Assessment Questionnaire (PAQ) that includes a New Patient Guide. 

What is a PAQ?

The Pre-Assessment Questionnaire is an introductory form to collect basic demographic, basic history, and identification that will expedite patient onboarding.

What should I know before filling out the PAQ?

Please review our FAQs for any clinical questions.  Sorry, we do not accept Medicaid or MediCal coverage at this time.

Why would I do this before getting an appointment?

A completed PAQ assists us in confirming your benefits and determining a suitable provider for your unique case, Our team aims to be prepared to offer you accurate and useful preliminary information before scheduling to help you make an informed decision and avoid any unpleasant surprises for both you and us.

How long does the PAQ take?

Total time for all questions takes approximately as little as 6 minutes and autosaves your progress. Of course, if you wish to share more detail or have a complex case, you can spend more time.  Our average completion time hovers around 10 minutes for complex cases.

What all should I have before I start the form?

Please have your legal ID and insurance card ready as well as a list of your medications, if any.

What if I am afraid to mention certain aspects of my history?

Answer questions openly and honestly.  Don’t feel there are any “wrong” or “bad” answers and don’t hesitate to include all relevant details. Please reference you prior records, medications, and our practice website for more information.

What is the best way to complete the PAQ?

The forms are best filled out on a desktop or an iOS mobile device. Android users are currently experiencing errors when trying to submit the form on their mobile devices.  We are actively troubleshooting the issue.

Will I have to complete this information in the intake forms again before my first visit? 

Your answers will be transferred to your future patient chart, saving you time from answering these questions again during your onboarding and initial consultation interview.

Will my personal information be used for any other reason?

All your information collected securely, will remain private and is used solely for timely onboarding.

What are the next steps?

Once you click submit, you are welcome to browse the rest of the site.  Our office will call you within 48 hours to schedule your first visit and discuss your financial responsibility, if any.

Submission of this inquiry form and preliminary correspondence with our staff does not establish a patient-provider relationship with Evolve Psychiatry. You must finish your intake, meet with your psychiatrist, and formulate a treatment plan in order to establish yourself as a patient.
