Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Ocean Psychiatry provides quality services throughout California and Arizona through their Telehealth platform, letting patients access the practice’s services without visiting in person.

The practice’s telemedicine facility is available via your smartphone, tablet, personal computer, or laptop. The technology is fully encrypted and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant for your security and privacy.

Ocean Psychiatry’s videoconferencing technology is similar to familiar platforms like Zoom and Skype. It allows you to receive high-quality mental health treatment without the inconvenience of traveling to a face-to-face consultation.

Telemedicine is ideal for people with disabilities or chronic health conditions that make traveling challenging. It’s also great if you live outside Fremont or are away from home and can’t get to an in-person appointment.

What benefits does telemedicine offer?

Telemedicine has some notable benefits, which include:

  • Easy, secure log-in anywhere with internet access
  • No time wasted getting to and from an appointment
  • No stressful traffic jams or crowds
  • Saves money on transport costs
  • Avoids exposure to infections like flu and COVID-19

Many health care providers in varied fields offer telemedicine, but it’s particularly valuable for patients with psychiatric disorders. Mental health problems often make leaving your safe home environment stressful and sometimes impossible. With telemedicine, you can get expert care from your Ocean Psychiatry provider without any unnecessary stress.

What can I use telemedicine for?

Telemedicine is suitable for anyone receiving treatment for mental health or behavioral disorders such as:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

You can also use Ocean Psychiatry’s telemedicine service for problems like grief and relationship counseling. You can talk to your provider about how you’re feeling, the progress you’re making, and any issues you face.

Medication management is also available via telemedicine. Your provider reviews the medicines you’re on to check if you’re benefiting from them or if they’re causing any side effects. They can send you an electronic prescription if you need more medication or a change to your treatment.

Telemedicine is suitable for all the counseling and therapy you need. However, you have to visit Ocean Psychiatry in person for treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), Spravato™, and ketamine infusion therapy.
