Telepsychiatry is an application of telemedicine to the specialty field of Psychiatry. The term typically describes the delivery of psychiatric assessment and mental health care through HIPAA compliant televideo technology.

 

One of the drivers behind the growth of telepsychiatry within the United States has been a national shortage of psychiatrists, particularly in specialty areas such as child and adolescence psychiatry. Telepsychiatry allows doctors to serve more patients by providing healthcare to rural or under-served areas that have a barrier to access. 

Here at Virtual Consult MD, we provide Telepsychiatry and mental health services at our many office locations. Our clinical staff is available at each location to assist patients with their medical needs. We collaborate with local community healthcare providers, hospitals, and medical agencies/facilities in an effort to provide quality and continuity of care.

Our board certified psychiatrists and advanced nurse practitioners are compassionate, dedicated and strive for excellence in care.  The next time you need the help you deserve, contact Virtual Consult MD and communicate your way to better health. “We Connect. We Consult. We Care.”

Doctoral Level Licenses

Psychiatrist (M.D. or D.O.)

Psychiatrists first become licensed medical doctors. Additionally, they must complete a three-year residency program in psychiatric medicine. A Psychiatrists’ training emphasizes the biological basis of thought, emotion, and behavior. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication.

Masters Level Licenses

Advanced Nurse Practitioner (A.N.P.)

Advanced Nurse Practitioners complete a two-year master’s degree in nursing, complete a supervised clinical and psychotherapy training internship as part of the degree program, and pass a certifying examination. Not all advanced nurse practitioners have psychiatric training. Most psychiatric advanced nurse practitioners offer both psychotherapy and medication services.
