Telemedicine is the term given to remote healthcare delivery. For example, via the internet and videochat apps. Telemedicine allows doctors and patients to converse with one another remotely, wherever they happen to be.
What I Do
My role in your treatment is to:
Diagnose a mental health condition
Determine if medications are safe and helpful for your condition
Maximize the benefit of medications, without doing harm.
All to help you lead a more fulfilling life.
A psychiatrist is needed when talk therapy is not enough to achieve the goal of stabilizing your condition and getting you to feel better. As a medical doctor, my job in your care is to manage psychotropic medications.
is not a choice
