Online Psychiatrists for Staten Island Clients Provide Effective Treatment
Skypiatrist doctors are fully-trained, licensed medical professionals who are able to evaluate patients, provide talk therapy, and prescribe medications when necessary. You will be matched with a particular doctor and your appointments will always be with the same doctor. You’ll be able to build a relationship with your online psychiatrist in the same way that you would with a traditional doctor.
Privacy is a key value for Skypiatrist, and their HIPAA-approved video chat application is embedded on their website, without going through a server. This means that only you and your doctor are privy to what is said in sessions, and only your doctor has access to your file. This is a level of privacy that in-person practices are unable to match. Connecting is simple and anyone with a device that has a functioning videocamera (smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop) will be able to access the service.
You will save a great deal of time by using an online psychiatrist. It seems as though rush hour lasts from dawn to dusk on the Island and fighting traffic to get to and from appointments can eat up your time and energy. There’s no commute with online mental healthcare!
And finally, never underestimate the value of being comfortable. Feeling relaxed in your own space can help you to open up to your doctor and improve communication.
