    What is Telepsychiatry?

    Telepsychiatry is the use of telecommunication and computer information technology to facilitate real-time videoconferencing between you and your psychiatrist. Since its first implementation in 1959, telepsychiatry has proven to be as clinically effective as face-to-face counseling sessions, demonstrating similar or improved levels of patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes.

    Our cutting-edge telehealth technologies enable us to provide you with an initial consultation, diagnostic evaluation, and continued treatment. Utilizing secure video communication to contact you via your laptop, smart phone, tablet, or personal computer, we can effectively provide you the mental health support you need in this time of crisis and follow your progress over time.

    If you reside in any other state, we can also help you with our remote genetic testing and second opinion consultations.

    Benefits of Telepsychiatry in the Age of Coronavirus

    • Increased convenience: You can receive specialized behavioral health treatment from the comfort of your home, without the hassle or cost of visiting the offices of your psychiatrist.
    • Quality of care: By allowing your psychiatrist to connect with you on a more routine basis, telepsychiatry offers greater continuity of care, increased quality, and a broader range of services no matter where you are.
    • Access: Telepsychiatry enables you and your psychiatrist to easily overcome whatever barriers the coronavirus pandemic has put between you and your access to services, from geographic distance to transportation difficulties to time limitations.
    • Privacy: The technology platform we use is HIPAA-compliant, using 256-bit encryption (bank-level security).
    • Simplicity of use: Our telepsychiatry platform is very easy to use. All you need is a webcam, a computer, and Internet to log in and begin the psychiatry session with your doctor.
