FAQ about Telemedicine:
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is a health care option that allows you to talk to your provider and receive medical services virtually. You talk to your provider via telephone or video chat. It’s an excellent alternative to in-office visits, especially when you only have a quick question or need a prescription refill. Medical services that are offered virtually include evaluations for ADHD, insomnia, depression, and anxiety disorders through a combination of counseling and medication management.
Crescent City Psychiatric LLC offers telemedicine to ensure their services are accessible for everyone from busy professionals and college students to those who have mobility or transportation issues that make it challenging to attend in-office appointments.
We take your mental health seriously and want to make sure that you have access to the care you need to lead a fulfilling life.
