Telepsychiatry is the delivery of psychiatric care via telecommunications technology, usually the phone.
In-person office visits are usually preferred since more information can be conveyed. However, there is a benefit to telephone appointments for people who travel, who are sick, or have scheduling conflicts. The decision for a phone appointment is an individual decision between the doctor and patient.
Phone appointments are initiated between 4 pm and 6 pm Monday through Friday. If there is an opening during the day between 9:30 am and 4 pm we may try to call. However, if we miss you during the day we will try again during the 4 – 6 period.
We will respect your schedule and time requirements. Go HERE if you have questions about phone appointments.
