Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the delivery of health services from a distance using telecommunication technology, like phones, tablets, and computers. Instead of driving to an office to see your provider, you meet by phone call or video conference from a place that works better for you. 

Many areas of health care use telemedicine to make it more convenient for people to get the medical services they need. Alpine Psychiatry is an adult and child psychiatry practice that provides in-person and virtual visits for their clients. 

When can I use telemedicine for psychiatric care?

You and your provider at Alpine Psychiatry can decide when it’s appropriate for you to use telemedicine for psychiatric care. 

Alpine Psychiatry may be able to do all your appointments through telemedicine, including your comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, psychotherapy, and medication management. 

Alpine Psychiatry treats all psychiatric disorders, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders

They provide care for all people ages 12 and up. 

What can I expect during a telemedicine appointment?

You can expect the same attentive, patient-centered care during your telemedicine appointment at Alpine Psychiatry as you’d expect during an in-person visit. The specifics of your appointment depend on the reason for your virtual visit. 

The practitioners have a lot of experience using telemedicine for patient care. They employ active listening and take a holistic approach, focusing on your whole wellness.

Alpine Psychiatry is a progressive psychiatry practice and recognizes that traditional treatments aren’t always enough. They can talk to you about other therapies that may benefit your mental well-being, including supplements, mindfulness-based therapies, and novel treatments like ketamine, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and neurofeedback.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

When it comes to your mental health, telemedicine offers many benefits. Despite being vital to your overall health, you may put your mental well-being off if you don’t have the time or resources to see a mental health professional. 

Telemedicine makes it more convenient for you to get the care you need, saving you the time needed to drive to the office, find a sitter to watch your children, or take time off from work. With telemedicine, you can meet with your provider at a time and place that works for you.
