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.
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.
What are the benefits of telemedicine?
Telemedicine provides a wide range of benefits.
First, you save time. You don’t need to spend time traveling to and from our office. You don’t need to sit long hours in the waiting room.
Additionally, you don’t need to take time off work for your appointments. You can schedule your telemedicine appointment during a lunch break.
Telemedicine is also helpful if you need to organize child or elder care. You just need sufficient privacy to talk about your concerns.
Telemedicine also helps you improve your mental health. When your appointments are more convenient, you’re more likely to attend them instead of canceling when your day gets too busy.
What services are available through telemedicine?
Crescent City Psychiatric LLC offers services via telemedicine in many ways. For example, you can touch base with your provider to talk about your prescription and get a refill.

Certain services must be provided in at our office in Metairie, Louisiana. Any initial assessments or psychological testing must be done on-site. In the early stages of evaluating and diagnosing your condition, your provider needs to see you in person.
This allows your provider to observe your overall health and behaviors. It’s also a good way for you to begin to develop your relationship.
