What Is Telepsychiatry or Telemedicine?

Telepsychiatry is a subcategory of telemedicine – a type of health care that is offered through the use of video-based applications (similar to Skype or FaceTime). With telepsychiatry, Dr. Byrd is able to provide professional services to patients who may not be able to travel to a local office for a face-to-face visit or prefer the convenience of telemedicine.

Patients may wonder how telemedicine will differ from standard in-office appointments with a psychiatrist. 
There are many benefits to consider, including:

  • Convenience and comfort - Complete video calls wherever you feel most relaxed and at ease, from the comfort of your own home. 
  • Avoid delays and added expenses - There are no traffic or gas expenses when doing appointments via telehealth.
  • Improved accessibility - Patients living in rural areas will have access to quality providers.
  • Increased flexibility - Telemedicine offers flexibility in managing time for appointments.
