FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES OUTSIDE THE COURT SYSTEM
We offer the following forensic services that do not involve a civil or criminal court case.
Police Fitness Evaluations
We offer psychological evaluations to law enforcement and other public service applicants.
Please find out the specific requirements of your fitness evaluation so that we may cover all areas required by your employer or potential employer in your evaluation.
Veterans: PTSD and other mental health issues
Are you a Veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces who is working with an attorney to secure needed benefits for your service-related mental health condition?
Dr. Roy Etheridge, a wartime veteran himself, has extensive experience evaluating and diagnosing veterans. He understands the complex issues that veterans face, and his evaluation may help you secure the benefits you need.
A fitness-for-duty examination is typically asked of current employees to determine whether the employee is psychologically fit to return to work. This evaluation may also be requested of students, whether in grade school or college.
We conduct evaluations requested by an employer or academic institution after an incident has occurred at work or school.
Worker's Compensation & Disability Evaluations
If you have been injured at work or if you have psychological symptoms that were caused by your job, please consult an attorney. If you are seeking psychiatric disability benefits from an insurance company or the federal government, please apply directly to the appropriate agency. If you are asked to seek a psychological evaluation, call us.
FAQ about Forensic Psychological Evaluations
Please note that we conduct our psychological evaluations within the strict ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association and the laws and rules of the North Carolina Psychology Board. As such, we cannot guarantee a specific outcome, diagnosis, or recommendation upon conducting an evaluation. There is certainly a chance that you will be unhappy with the results or that the evaluation will not benefit your case, and we do not issue refunds. We strongly suggest that you discuss with your attorney prior to hiring us for your court-related psychological evaluation, and we also suggest that you have your attorney consult with us prior to the evaluation. Finally, forensic evaluations must be paid out-of-pocket and will not be billed to your health insurance company.
