WHAT IS TELEPSYCHIATRY?

Telepsychiatry a.k.a. Telepsych is the process of using technology, such as videoconferencing to deliver psychiatric services. In psychiatry, we use telemedicine as a form of online therapy. We can provide psychiatric consultations, therapy, medication management, and life coaching appointments all through telemedicine. We use a secure, HIPAA compliant platform to deliver remote online therapy to our clients. Our telepsychiatry appointments (or online appointments) are very similar to in-person sessions. It includes live, direct interaction between the doctor and patient, the doctor can prescribe medications and can write referrals the same as if the patient came into the office. The online appointment is set up the same as if it were in-person, but at the time of appointment, the patient will log onto and meet the doctor in the online platform rather than in our office.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TELEPSYCHIATRY IN NYC?

Telepsychiatry provides many benefits; one of the major benefits is the level of access it allows. For our patients who frequently travel or have difficulties finding time to make it for an in-person appointment, telepsych has proven very helpful. It is also beneficial for people who have long commutes and don’t want to deal with coming into the city for appointments. For patients who move but do not want to start over with a new therapist or doctor, telepsychiatry is a great alternative. Within our practice, we make it a top priority to be there for our patients when they need us. With telemedicine, providing online psychiatric visits has never been easier.
