What is Tele-psychiatry?
Tele-psychiatry connects patients and doctor or therapist through technology; it uses cameras at both ends over a secure internet connection. It is a convenient service that we now offer to our patients who are medically stable. While this service does not replace face to face visits, it can be used in between face to face visits or just to discuss test results in between visits. It cannot be used in emergencies or crisis situations; instead, go to the nearest ER or call 911. Whether a patient needs medication management, Bible based counseling, stress management and/or life coaching; these needs can be met in Tele-psychiatry. Telemedicine can be a private, convenient, and professional way to deliver a full range of mental health services. Think about how much time you save by not having to take time off work, travel time, gas and wait time, you can get help in the comfort of your home.

We are willing to extend such services to you in the privacy and comfort of your home for a fee. These services are only offered to our well established patients who are on a stable regimen
