Printer-friendly VersionIntroductionLexington Forensic Psychiatry performs psychiatric evaluations in legal cases wherein a person's mental state is raised as an issue. The highest quality assessments are obtained to provide triers of fact with sound opinions. A wide variety of evaluations are available.
The Adult Forensic Psychiatric Evaluation Process is dependent upon the type of assessment needed. A typical psychiatric IME examination follows contemporary forensic standards. The process of evaluation for brain injuries typically requires a different protocol than a standard psychiatric evaluation, with an extensive neuropsychological assessment and neuroimaging MRI or CT-in addition to a laboratory psychiatric evaluation. The Forensic Evaluation of the Child requires special, age-appropriate evaluation techniques.
Information for individuals who are scheduled for a forensic evaluation in our offices is provided on the Forensic Examination Guidelines page.
