We also provide Telepsychiatry services. Telemedicine is the diagnosis and treatment of patients, in which the provider and the patient interact via a secure, audiovisual internet connection. We feel it is of utmost importance to maintain patient privacy and keep information secure. The technology we use is designed to be a private, secure, HIPAA-compliant tool that allows you to safely and confidentially consult with a psychiatrist online.
All visits are conducted online, and from the comfort of your home or private office. This eliminates commuting to and from the clinic and minimizes trips to the pharmacy, eliminates the waiting room altogether, and essentially makes each visit a virtual house call.
Research has demonstrated that psychiatric consultation and short-term follow-up provided by telepsychiatry can produce clinical outcomes that are equivalent to those achieved when patients are assessed and followed in-person.
Controlled substances (Ativan, Xanax, Valium, Clonazepam, Ambien, Lunesta, Sonata, Temazepam, ADHD Stimulant medicationsetc) cannot be prescribed via telehealth unless you have seen the provider first in person. Otherwise, all other psychiatric medications can be prescribed by your online psychiatrist.
