Abstract

To assess the impact of psychiatric consultation, the authors reviewed the charts of patients referred from a neurology clinic to an outpatient consultation/liaison psychiatry clinic. The patients were found to have both significant neurologic and psychiatric disorders. Only 46 percent returned to see their neurologists within six months of the referral. This finding highlights a major problem in outpatient consultation.
