Illinois DocAssist, a virtual psychiatric consultancy based at UIC, helps primary care physicians meet their patients mental health needs

There is a 15 minute window to solve a riddle. Physical symptoms aren’t adding up. The waiting room is packed with sniffling children and anxious parents. Everyone seems restless and impatient.  There are tests to run, prescriptions to manage, questions to answer.  The clock is always against you.  This is how Dr. Marilyn Griffin, psychiatrist at University of Illinois at Chicago and consultant for Illinois DocAssist depicts a typical pediatrician’s office on a typical day. In short, it’s hectic.
