What is telemedicine?

At Live Well Psychiatry, telemedicine appointments are similar to office visits, but you don’t have to come into the office. You can attend telemedicine appointments from your home, office, or any other private place where you have a reliable internet connection. 

The team provides all of the necessary paperwork and assessments on the patient portal. You can complete the paperwork before your appointment, and your provider can assess your symptoms and health with the same information you would provide in the office. They can assess your symptoms, recommend treatments, and send prescriptions to your pharmacy.

The team uses Zoom and recommends that you download the app before your appointment. They provide a link for you to join your private meeting.

What services are available through telemedicine?

The team at Live Well Psychiatry offers a full range of psychiatric services via telemedicine, including: 

Initial evaluations

The providers at Live Well Psychiatry offer comprehensive initial psychiatric evaluations. With research-level questionnaires and surveys that you can complete online via the patient portal, they provide expert diagnoses. 

Medication management

If you take medication for a psychiatric condition, you need to have routine medication management follow-up appointments. You can complete the symptom surveys online before your telemedicine appointment to review your symptoms, overall health, and any other concerns. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Telemedicine offers several patient benefits. The team wants to make expert psychiatric care as convenient and as easy as possible for you and your family. 

Cost 

By using telemedicine, you don’t have to pay for gas, parking, or other transportation costs. Since you don’t have to leave home or work to attend your appointment, you don’t need to pay for an additional child or eldercare. 

Time

You don’t need to take time off work or worry about spending time in the waiting room when you opt for telemedicine. You can schedule your appointment during a break in your working day or when you know you will have time to talk to your provider. 

Distance

Telemedicine eliminates geographic factors that can prevent you from making or getting to your appointments. Whether you live outside of the city limits or work on the other side of town, you can attend your consultation from anywhere.
