Telepsychiatry visits allow you to connect with your doctor through video conferencing. This means that you can use your smartphone, laptop, desktop computer, or tablet to connect with your psychiatrist using the internet. This allows you to have your appointment in the comfort of your own home or office. If you think this service would benefit you, ask your psychiatrist if video appointments are an appropriate option for you.
- Ability to log in through most internet-enabled laptops, desktop computers, or tablets – you just need a device with a camera.
- Or you can use your smartphone for your appointment!
- Video appointments allow access to care when you may be sick, traveling, or have other circumstances that make it difficult to commute to one of our clinics. This helps decrease the need to reschedule or miss an appointment.
- Knowledgeable staff who will provide assistance and support as needed. They are available to answer any questions you may have before your first session.
Telepsychiatry appointments require a private space in your home or office free of interruptions. Successful video appointments require a smartphone, laptop, desktop computer, or a tablet with a camera, microphone, and high bandwidth internet connections to be in good working order. Not all insurers cover telepsychiatry. If telepsychiatry is not a covered benefit, we can provide out of pocket payment options.
Patients have expressed great satisfaction with the care they are receiving through telepsychiatry appointments and appreciate the convenience of it. We are glad to offer this service to our patients as part of our commitment to provide both high quality and accessible health care.
