Tele-psychiatry or virtual psychiatry is the delivery of psychiatric care services over the internet through secure 2-way live video or telephone calls.

There are numerous advantages to engaging in online psychiatric consultations. It eliminates the need to leave your residence as you can meet your provider virtually. It also spares you from enduring the hassles of a lengthy commute, traffic congestion, expensive parking, and taking time off from work that are typically associated with in-person appointments. Additionally, virtual visits offer greater accessibility by accommodating evening and weekend hours.

Online consultations can take place wherever you have high-speed internet connection and access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Your treatment plan may involve diagnosis, counseling, referrals, or prescribed medications as needed. Electronic prescriptions can be conveniently transmitted to a pharmacy of your preference.
