TeleMedicine Options

We do offer virtual services as we understand that you need to balance your health priorities with your daily life. To help support this and create easier access to care, we offer virtual visits for med management and therapy.

While Telehealth offers many advantages, it does limit the value of an initial meeting. Because of this, our initial medication management appointments require an in-person visit. After this, we will gladly offer psychiatric medication services via Telehealth. Our sessions have the option of being virtual as well, once you have established with your therapist.

List of TeleHealth Services available

  1. Psychological Assessment
  2. Follow-up Management of Medications
  3. Counseling
