Generally, the doctor performing the evaluation is hired by an attorney or the court to complete evaluations. Should that be the case, the attorney(s) on a case will call to set an appointment. Depending the specifics of your particular case, the evaluation might be conducted in one day or multiple appointments may be needed. Typically, the evaluation includes an extensive interview process, psychological testing, review of records (e.g. medical, legal, personnel, and/or psychological/psychiatric), and possibly collateral contacts (e.g. family members, other professionals, etc.-depending upon the type of case).
