We recommend seeing your clinician in-person as much as you can, but understand that’s not always feasible. CalPsychiatry offers telepsychiatry to supplement your mental health treatment plan.
Seeing a psychiatrist through a computer screen is not the same as being physically present with them in the room. But there are cases where supplementing in-person care with video conferencing can be a smart move. CalPsychiatry offers telepsychiatry as an option for regular check-ins to patients who have already established their care in person and can commit to the occasional physical office visit. We encourage you to discuss this option with your doctor and see if it’s appropriate.
