Telepsychiatry Q & A

What is telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry services harness the power of modern online communications tools to deliver personalized psychiatric care via videoconferencing. You can meet with Dr. Hsieh from the comfort and privacy of your home or office. 

Dr. Hsieh uses the doxy.me secure telemedicine platform to offer telepsychiatry. Doxy.me is HIPAA compliant and easy to use. He sends you a personal link for you to log into your appointment. There’s no need to download additional software. 

What telepsychiatry services are available?

Dr. Hsieh provides a comprehensive range of telepsychiatry services, including evaluations, therapy, and medication management. 

Evaluations

Dr. Hsieh can provide psychiatric evaluations via videoconference. While it’s often helpful to meet in person for the first appointment, in some cases, that’s not a viable option. Dr. Hsieh can evaluate your mental, spiritual, and physical health with telepsychiatry to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Medication management

Medication is often a critical component of psychiatric treatment. However, most psychiatric medicines require careful monitoring to ensure the drug relieves your symptoms and doesn’t cause unwanted or intolerable side effects. 

Dr. Hsieh offers telepsychiatry medication management appointments to check in with you and monitor the effectiveness of your treatment. Most medication management appointments are brief but provide valuable insight into the effectiveness of your treatment plan.

Counseling

Dr. Hsieh also provides online counseling sessions. Your telepsychiatry appointment is similar to an in-office appointment. However, instead of going in to the office, you log in to your appointment via your personal doxy.me link. Once you’re logged in, you and Dr. Hsieh talk just as you would in person.

What are the benefits of telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry provides various benefits and conveniences. One of the main benefits is that you can access psychiatric care from anywhere. It has opened up specialty mental health care to many in remote areas who would have to make long journeys to meet with a doctor. 

Using telepsychiatry services helps you save time and money. You don’t need to take time off work or drive through Houston traffic to get to your appointment. As you log in just a few minutes before your appointment, you also avoid spending time in the waiting room. 

You also don’t need to worry about parking, ride-share, or public transportation. Since you can log in at home, there’s no need to organize additional child care or elder care.
