Panic and anxiety can impact anyone at anytime. It can convince us that we are out of our mind, that we are dying, or that something physically is wrong with us. Estimates are that about 1 in 30 people experience significant panic at some time in their life.

Patients interested in determining their level of panic can take the Panic Distress Questionnaire as part of their treatment orientation.
