Neuropsychiatric Institute is Tampa Bay's largest, private Mental Health Practice. We currently have twenty licensed Mental Health practitioners to serve you. We serve clients from Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, Pasco, Polk, Sarasota, and Hernando counties, and more.
We see patients by appointment only. Appointments can be made over the phone or in person.
Psychiatry and Medication Management
Psychiatric evaluation appointments are generally available within 2 - 3 months. Medication Management (follow-up) appointments should be scheduled after each appointment. Patients are asked questions regarding side effects and your opinion of how the medication is working for you, and perhaps discuss how the rest of your treatment is going. You may be ordered undergo regular blood tests, as certain medications must be monitored. Medication management appointments are expected to last ten to twenty minutes. Patients should ensure that the follow-up appointment is scheduled for a date before they will run out medications.
Psychological evaluation appointments are generally available within 4 - 6 weeks. When scheduling follow-up appointments, we recommend that patients schedule out multiple appointments, covering the next two to three months. This will help ensure the patient gets appointments on the days and timeslots that are most convenient for the patient.
Our scheduling system incorporates a waiting list for each provider. If we do not have an appointments available within the time period you desire, please make sure to request that your name be added to the waiting list. Whenever a patient cancels an appointment, our staff will call patients on the wait list to offer the available time. These appointments are available on a first come, first served basis.
Cancelling or Rescheduling Appointments
We require 24 hours notice in order to cancel or reschedule an appointment without a charge. Most of our clinicians have clients on a waiting list, and we want to be available for these clients. Therefore, individuals will be charged for appointments not kept without proper notice.
