In addition to protecting patients and clinicians from virus transmission, telepsychiatry has extended our reach throughout the state of California. For the time being, we have converted 100% of all psychiatric appointments to telemedicine to protect you and each other, and to “flatten the curve.”
Through telemedicine, we can accomplish new patient and follow-up psychiatric evaluations, psychotherapy sessions, and consultations for referral into our interventional treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), IV ketamine infusions, and Spravato™ treatments. Telepsychiatry is billable to all insurance plans, subject to our network status, just as if patients were seen in-office. Co-payments, co-insurances, and deductibles apply. Self-pay psychiatry rates apply for those without insurance.
To be scheduled for a telepsychiatry evaluation, please contact our office directly via our website, email, or by phone. Our helpful staff will assist with the process of getting set up with your appointment. There are two steps that you will need to complete to be ready for your appointment:
- Register for our clinic’s patient portal, called “OnPatient,” then “check-in” to your appointment to sign consent forms and answer some medical history questions. You will get an email with a link to register for OnPatient when you are booking your appointment with our staff. Follow this link to complete registration.
- Register for your account for our telemedicine platform called “Chiron Health.” You will get an email with a link to Chiron Health. Follow this link and you will enter your demographics and a credit card to pay for your appointment.
Please complete both the above steps as soon as possible so you will be ready to go when the appointment day and time is here. On the day of your scheduled telemedicine appointment, please log in 15 minutes in advance of your scheduled time to allow time for troubleshooting and to keep on schedule.
We look forward to seeing you on line!
