TelePsychiatry Services

What is telepsychiatry?


Telepsychiatry (or telehealth or telemedicine) is a way of seeing your doctor without visiting the office. You schedule sessions with your doctor the same way you would an in-person session, but the visit occurs over a secure videoconference connection on your computer or phone.

How it helps you

Telepsychiatry offers a way of continuing your care wherever you are. For people who have busy schedules and can’t easily make it to in-person appointments, telepsychiatry makes their lives easier. Your doctor can do almost all of the same things via videoconferencing that they can do at an in-person visit.

There are some restrictions on federally controlled substances and there may be occasions where it’s important to conduct an in-person session. Your doctor will work with you to determine that.

California is like nowhere else. With so many people needing to move back and forth between NorCal and SoCal, the daily challenges of our commutes, and all the jobs we have that we do from home or on set, it’s hard to have a home base and a doctor’s office next door.

We’ve had numerous patients on-the-move around the state who have comfortable psychiatric care without having to worry about switching to a new clinic. You won’t have to take a sick day once a month or take 3 hours out of your day anymore!
