What is Telepsychiatry?
Tele-psychiatry is when you talk to a psychiatry provider via a computer. This is easy, private, and accessible. How it works: At the time of your appointment, you will be led into a private room by our Medical Assistant. After she takes your vitals, they will leave the room (or stay with you if you wish) and your appointment will begin. Tele-psychiatry sessions are private and confidential.
