At Dr. Messina & Associates, we understand that each individual is unique. Prior to creating a personalized testing plan, your provider will conduct a thorough assessment of your medical and psychological history. Armed with a deeper understanding of your distinct symptoms and requirements, our team will tailor a testing regimen specifically to you.

Types of Psychological Tests

A psychological assessment begins with a review of your school, medical, and employment records. Subsequently, a clinical interview is conducted. During this interview, you’ll answer a series of questions about your symptoms, lifestyle, and overall quality of life. Your responses provide insight into your thought processes, reasoning abilities, and social interactions.

Psychological testing encompasses both direct evaluation of various abilities and the completion of questionnaires or surveys during an in-office appointment. Each test adheres to standardized procedures, meaning your responses are assessed using established guidelines. These tests are meticulously crafted by qualified researchers to effectively measure specific traits or disorders. This comprehensive evaluation aids in achieving an accurate diagnosis and determining the most suitable treatment.

What to Expect During Psychological Testing

Preparing for psychological testing is straightforward. While you might be tempted to seek practice assessments online, Dr. Messina & Associates recommends against it. Preparing answers in advance can result in inconsistent results, complicating diagnosis and treatment. On the day of your test, arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment, complete the necessary paperwork, and leave the rest to our team.
