TelePsychiatry

Telepsychiatry is a remote visit, so you can avoid the costs and time it takes to drive to the office for care and follow-ups. At Prime Psychiatry in Frisco, Texas, our team offers telepsychiatry visits for medication management, counseling, and evaluations. If you’re interested in learning more, schedule your appointment by phone or book online at Prime Psychiatry today.

What is telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry is a service that makes psychiatric care a bit easier and more convenient for busy patients. Our team at Prime Psychiatry offers remote telepsychiatry visits using high-definition videoconferencing, eliminating the need to go to the office for an evaluation or follow-up visit. 

All telepsychiatry services at Prime Psychiatry are private and confidential, just like your office visits. You can schedule your visit from the comfort of your home, office, or even a hotel room when out of town. 

While you can do a lot with telepsychiatry, our team does not prescribe controlled substances during virtual visits. However, we can prescribe these medications during office visits if you need them. 

What can I use telepsychiatry for?

Telepsychiatry is an excellent option for visits that don’t need to happen in person. Our team at Prime Psychiatry offers telepsychiatry visits for:

Psychiatric evaluations

A psychiatric evaluation includes a detailed questionnaire that helps your providers better understand your thought patterns and behaviors. We use the results to help make diagnoses for various mental health conditions. 

Medication management

You can use telepsychiatry visits to follow up on new or changing medications. Our team can prescribe or adjust your dosage for medications like antidepressants and certain other oral medications, like anti-anxiety medications. 

Counseling

Counseling sessions take place privately between you and a provider. With telepsychiatry, you can complete a session without leaving the comfort of your home. 

Which conditions can telepsychiatry help manage or treat?

Telepsychiatry is available for some aspects of treatment for numerous mental health conditions and concerns. You can talk to our team about adding telepsychiatry visits to your treatment plan for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Panic disorders
  • Substance use disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

At Prime Psychiatry, our team treats these disorders with medications, counseling, and modern in-office treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). While you can’t get some treatments remotely, you can reduce your overall number of office visits for counseling, evaluations, and medication follow-ups. 

Telepsychiatry can make it easier and more convenient to keep up with your mental health treatment plan. To schedule a visit, call Prime Psychiatry or book an appointment online today.
