Do you have online psychiatrists that do online consultations with video chat?

Hello,

Answers provided are for informational use only and do not confer patient-provider relationship. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you.

 

We do not have psychiatrists who do online consultations. One must see a patient in person at least once before such consultation is legal. In addition, the psychiatrists here do not treat patients. They can only answer questions about mental health problems.

 

Best regards,

Then why is there a website that says it can do it online its called e-psychiatry? Is this legitimate?


 

They schedule appointments for exams in their office, or in a primary care physician's office and the record of the exam is sent to them. You can read their frequently asked questions here. http://www.e-psychiatry.com/telepsychiatry_faq.pdf

 

 

 

Just Answer does not treat patients at all. We are strictly limited to information and research.

".....Q: Are there any limitations to telepsychiatry treatment?
A: All limitations inherent in the traditional psychiatrist-patient relationship are present in telepsychiatry. You may need to visit your primary care physician prior to any treatment with medications. Not all consultations will result in the prescription of medication. When indicated, prescriptions can be sent (electronically, via fax, or by phone) to the patient's pharmacy of choice. However, some states and federal laws provide stipulations when prescribing Schedule II, III, IV and V medications. For example, if you are seeking buprenorphine (Suboxone®) treatment through a telepsychiatry visit for opiod dependence. We require that you have a yearly Face-to-Face visit with this type treatment followed with random drug testing at a facility of the prescribing physician's choice. With most other scheduled medications we only require one face to face visit. Follow-ups for all scheduled medications must be conducted through video.....".
They are subject to laws just like everyone else.
