Do you need support, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep doctor appointments?
Maybe the drive is stressful or too long and a video appointment sounds more appealing?
Teletherapy (or telehealth) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing doctors and nurses to interact with patients through a convenient phone call.
Using your smart phone, you can consult with a nurse, a physician or a mental health professional to receive ongoing care when your primary care physician is unavailable, to get a prescription refilled, review test results or medical summaries or to have a remote therapy or counseling appointment.
Teletherapy appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
So if this sounds like you:
- You don’t have the right-for-you type of professional nearby
- You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person appointment
- You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment
… then HIPAA compliant Teletherapy services may be just what you need.
The convenience of having an appointment through your computer or phone app cannot be understated. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your home. If you have social anxiety that cause you to avoid social interactions, or simply want the specific kind of help I offer, Teletherapy makes it easier for you to get what you need.
