First, a psychodiagnostic assessment is conducted to determine the particular psychological problem and its severity. Then a program of treatment is decided upon together with the patient.
Each patient undergoes a thorough physical and neurological examination, in which height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and temperature are recorded.
If no blood tests have been taken prior to admission, they will be performed on the morning following admission. Our doctors may order all types of blood tests for a patient, as well as an electrocardiogram (EKG) and electroencephalographic test (EEG).
Existential orientation questionnaires, disorder-specific questionnaires, personality tests, tests for early detection of memory, attention and concentration disorders, memory tests, performance tests, and intelligence tests may also be conducted.
Evoked potential tests, nerve conduction velocity tests, electromyography (measures muscle response to nervous stimulation), F-wave testing, H-reflex and blinking reflexes are performed if neurological symptoms exist.
In addition, long attention span tests, daytime sleep tests, and extensive testing of night-time breathing and sound during sleep are conducted, as well as EEGs, electromyographies, eye movement tests, blood tests for oxygen and carbon dioxide content, electrocardiographies, and sleeping position monitoring are conducted with the aid of computers in the sleep lab.
Other examinations, such as in cases of internal, gynecological, surgical, or urological disorders, are conducted by medical specialists at the Clinics of the Main-Taunus Region, who have access to the entire range of diagnostic examination and treatment possibilities.
Examinations in other medical areas may be conducted in close cooperation with specialists if necessary. Our doctors can perform all types of X-ray examinations, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
