The Benefits of Online Psychiatry

Rather than spending the time traveling, waiting in an office and then hitting the road again on your way home, you can get the same benefits of seeing a psychiatrist in person with telemedicine. In fact, online psychiatry can give you the same mental health services from the comfort of your own home. Forget about scheduling a visit and traveling to meet with a psychiatrist — you can skip the travel and get the same great mental health help from anywhere.

From catching up on your status or to receive a refill on much-needed medications, just about anything is possible via online psychiatry. With both synchronous and asynchronous options, you can meet with a psychiatrist online in real time for talk therapy — or send a quick message through the portal to get care at everyone’s earliest convenience. 

Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, Adult ADHD, OCD, bipolar or another mental health disorder, online psychiatry can help you with a treatment plan. If your needs are more acute, such as a recent life change that you’re having trouble adjusting to, addiction, negative thinking, chronic stress or constant worry, an online psychiatrist can also help.

Not only can telemedicine help reduce delays in your care, but it can also help with more convenient appointment times where you may not even need to take time off of work. By calling in from the car or at home, you’ll be able to fit your mental health needs to your life, not the other way around. 

Online psychiatry is also more cost effective than typical in-person options, and it may also be just the right option for those that are apprehensive about booking that in-person visit. Furthermore, if you live in a more rural area where the traveling can be a real burden, telemedicine makes getting the mental health services you need more feasible and effective.

With telemed online psychiatry appointments, Aura MD is helping patients to receive the adult psychiatric care you need and offers appointments remotely through telemedicine or in our office.

We also provide guidance and tips on lifestyle changes to promote improved mental well-being and your optimal wellness. We believe that healthier daily habits combined with your comprehensive treatment plan will help you achieve your highest goals.

We customize a treatment plan specifically for you.

Let us help you make appointment setting and receiving your medications less time consuming and stressful.

Telemed appointments with Aura MD make keeping up with your mental health a streamlined and seamless process.
