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. Telepsychiatry appointments are done through our Electronic Health Record (EHR) called drchrono through our clinic’s patient portal, called “OnPatient.” Once scheduled by our staff for the “video visit” you will be sent an email link that you will need to click prior to your appointment which will take you to the portal where you can check-in for your appointment, sign any consent forms not completed, and then wait for your provider to start the visit.
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 online!
