When should I consider telepsychiatry?
You should consider telepsychiatry services if you need help managing conditions that affect your mental or emotional health. This might include:
- Substance abuse disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders (ADHD)
You can schedule your initial diagnostic evaluation with Dr. Sreepathi using telepsychiatry, and you might be able to continue with your appointments by phone or videoconferencing.
However, some treatments, including ketamine infusions and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) depression therapy, require in-office visits.
