Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

With telemedicine, you get the comprehensive health services you need without an in-office visit. Instead, you meet with your health care provider using advanced video software you can access from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Telemedicine saves you time and money, allows for greater flexibility when scheduling appointments, and reduces health risks and exposure to contagious illnesses like COVID-19.

Ascension Psychiatric Services provides telemedicine appointments for patients who are running low on their psychiatric medications and can’t get an appointment with their usual provider. They also offer telemedicine appointments for therapy. 

Who is a good candidate for telemedicine?

If you have a chronic mental health condition, you’re a good candidate for telemedicine at Ascension Psychiatric Services. Anthony and the team provide care for patients suffering from:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

With telemedicine at Ascension Psychiatric Services, you don’t have to go to the emergency room to refill your prescription. In addition to saving you time and aggravation, your telemedicine appointment also reduces your risk of exposure to infectious diseases like COVID-19.

What can I expect during telemedicine?

You can expect a professional and attentive telemedicine appointment at Ascension Psychiatric Services. During your appointment, Anthony asks detailed questions about your mental health history, symptoms, and the types of medications you take, including dose and frequency.

Anthony may then talk to you about your mental wellness and provide recommendations for managing your symptoms or stressful situations that exacerbate your condition. 

Depending on your diagnosis and the types of medications you take, Anthony may request documentation, such as a printout of the list of medications from your pharmacy.

Ascension Psychiatric Services is dedicated to helping you get psychiatric care and medication without needing an in-office visit. To schedule your telepsychiatry appointment, call the office or book one online today.
