Telepsychiatry is an innovative practice in healthcare that applies telemedicine to the field of psychiatry. It generally refers to the delivery of psychiatric assessment and care via telecommunications technology, usually videoconferencing.
We at the Psyclinic care about the health and well being of our patients during this difficult pandemic time and therefore decided to make our services available for all our patients thru e visits from the comfort of their home on their smart phone device.
The content of the appointment will be exactly the same as if it were taking place in person. Our doctors can discuss the issue in detail, make a treatment plan and even prescribe medicine through telepsychiatry. Any follow-up appointments or further referrals can be conducted much in the same way, saving the patient considerable travel time and related expenses.
At the time of your scheduled appointment you will receive a call from one of our staff to check in followed by a text msg from your provider inviting you to start your session on your phone.
All insurance plans cover this service and many waive copayment due to COVID-19 crisis.
