Typically the process begins with a brief telephone consultation with Dr. Brod, for which there is no charge. Then a one-hour consultation with Dr. Brod is arranged and appropriate intake forms are emailed for the patient to complete before that meeting. Prior to the initial consultation, additional forms or computerized testing may need to be completed as well, especially when there are issues that seem to stem from Attention Deficit Disorder (“an invisible disability,” Dr. Brod calls it) or head injury. Then, within that first consultation, Dr. Brod arrives at a working diagnosis and suggests a treatment plan.
If a form of biofeedback is indicated, the patient will begin working with Dr. Brod’s associate, Petra Schwarzwald. The individual treatment plan is developed by Dr. Brod who continues to supervise and monitor each case.
