Telepsychiatry allows you to see a psychiatrist securely from the comfort and privacy of your own home for evaluation and treatment of most behavioral health disorders. You can access this through our online patient portal. It is similar to using Facetime or Skype but on a HIPAA-compliant online video platform designed for doctor visits.
American Psychiatric Association (APA) Policy on Telepsychiatry
“Telemedicine in psychiatry, using video conferencing, is a validated and effective practice of medicine that increases access to care. The American Psychiatric Association supports the use of telemedicine as a legitimate component of a mental health delivery system to the extent that its use is for the benefit of the patient, protects patient autonomy, confidentiality, and privacy; and when used consistent with APA policies on medical ethics and applicable governing law.”
