Certain services must be provided in one of the Access Health Louisiana offices. Any initial assessments or psychological testing must be done on-site. In the early stages of evaluating and diagnosing your condition, your provider needs to see you in person. This allows your provider to observe your overall health and behaviors. It’s also a good way for you to begin to develop your relationship.
