Gary Davis, a 36-year-old white male, was disheveled and unkempt on presentation to the outpatient office. He was wearing dirty khaki pants, an unbuttoned golf shirt, and white shoes and appeared slightly younger than his stated age. During the interview, he was attentive and calm. He was impatient, but polite in his interactions with this examiner. Mr. Davis reported that today was the best day of his life, because he had decided he was going to be better and start his own company. His affect was labile, but appropriate to the content of his speech (i.e., he became tearful when reporting he had “bogeyed number 15” in gold yesterday). His speech was loud, pressured at times then he would quickly gain composure to a more neutral tone. He exhibited loosening of associations and flight of ideas; he intermittently and unpredictably shifted the topic of conversation from golf, to the mating habits of geese, to the likelihood of extraterrestrial life. Mr. Davis described grandiose delusions regarding his sexual and athletic performance. He reported no auditory hallucinations. He was oriented to time and place. He denied suicidal and homicidal ideation. He refused to participate in intellectual- or memory-related portions of the examination. Reliability, judgment, and insight were impaired.

The patient, Gary Davis, is a 36-year-old white male who recently completed an inpatient psychiatric unit stay for depression and anxiety symptoms. He presents to the outpatient office for a follow-up appointment two days after his discharge. He reports that he has been doing well overall with improved depressive and anxiety symptoms but still feels down at times. He states that he is sleeping better and feels the medication fluoxetine is helping somewhat. He has no suicide plan or thoughts and has no access to other prescription medications. He believes the classes he participated in while inpatient have helped him with coping mechanisms.
Based on the patient’s history, symptoms, and examination, the clinician arrives at a differential diagnosis of major depressive disorder, recurrent, without psychotic features (F33.4), generalized anxiety disorder (F41.1). The clinician continues the patient on fluoxetine and increases the dose to 20mg. They also continue the patient’s participation in the partial inpatient program for individual and group therapy sessions and utilize cognitive behavioral therapy as a psychotherapy modality. The clinician also discussed smoking cessation and the importance of medication adherence and side effects. The patient is scheduled for a follow-up appointment in one week or earlier if his depressive symptoms worsen and no referrals are made at this time.
