Psychiatric Services

ffs_dr_trayer_officeDr. J. Scott Trayer, is our on-site licensed psychiatrist at Franklin Family Services.  Dr. Trayer provides psychiatric evaluations and medication monitoring for children, adolescents, and adults who have psychiatric diagnoses.  He completes a psychiatric evaluation on all new patients, including a complete social, medical, and psychiatric history, as well as a mental-status exam. This evaluation process helps Dr. Trayer develop a diagnostic picture of each client and provides a basis for treatment planning.  If medication is prescribed, all clients have follow-up medication-management appointments with Dr. Trayer.  Frequency of the follow-ups is based on needs of each client.

Franklin Family Services also offers Telepsychiatry.  Telepsychiatry is the delivery of psychiatry through real time videoconferencing.  It has proven to be an effective form of care delivery and a great way to expand psychiatric support at our clinic.
