A consultation with a psychiatrist will be an evaluation of your symptoms and medical history to determine a course of treatment that fits your lifestyle and condition. Often, people will feel like something is wrong without knowing what, or misdiagnose themselves with a mental disorder. A consultation with a psychiatrist may give you a proper diagnosis of your condition, or further testing may be needed. Your doctor may have suggested a psychiatric consultation if he or she feels that an evaluation will be of benefit to you, or to rule that your medical condition is or is not psychosomatic (all in your head).
