Telepsychiatry in Florida
Luxury Psychiatry and Medical Spa is now offering telepsychiatry in Florida. With the opening of our office in Winter Garden, near Orlando, Florida, we are now offering telemedicine to Florida residents.
What Is Telepsychiatry?
Telemedicine uses technology to provide medical care from a distance. Telepsychiatry is a subset of telemedicine that uses various technologies to offer patient care. This method can be helpful for people living remotely or who prefer receiving care in the comfort of their homes.
Our online psychiatrists offer remote psychiatric care for services including:
How Telepsychiatry Works
Telehealth works in the same way as traditional one-on-one appointments. A person will first schedule an appointment with a psychiatrist. They will then receive a booking confirmation indicating the date and time of the initial appointment.
On the material day, the patient will log in to the conferencing channel and wait for their doctor to join. The meeting can also be done via telephone.
Telepsychiatry uses the same guidelines as in-person appointments. After an initial evaluation, the psychiatrist will create a treatment plan. Then the provider will refer the patient to other services and schedule a follow-up session.
In some cases, the psychiatrist may prescribe medication to patients. For most patients, telemedicine is covered by their insurance. That said, patients should check with their insurance provider to be sure before committing to telepsychiatry.
Some notes about our Telepsychiatry appointments:
Book appointments online or download our mobile app. We do not communicate via text or email other than through appointment reminders. We apologize for any delays caused by patients with complex symptoms or multiple mental health concerns. When booking, we cannot foresee which patient will need more time than average. Please forgive any delay. One day that person who needs extra time may be you.

Benefits of Telepsychiatry
One of the primary benefits of telehealth is that it offers an alternative to traditional treatment. In areas like Florida, telepsychiatry can be especially beneficial in situations where a psychiatrist may be located too far away to conveniently commute to during regular business hours.
Here are other advantages of telepsychiatry
It is Convenient
Remote therapy and psychiatry is an excellent option for patients who cannot travel to the hospital for various reasons. It may also reduce the need to ask permission to leave work or school for a doctor’s appointment.
Improved Quality of Care
Telemedicine is more cost-effective compared to in-person visits. Patients do not have to spend much money on transportation, sometimes several times a week, especially when coming from distant places.
Telehealth and therapy are practical tools for diagnosing the early onset of a condition. This is especially advantageous to individuals at risk of developing mental health issues.
Continuity of care
Unlike in-person hospital visits, telepsychiatry makes it easy for providers to follow up with their patients. They can do this using different channels, such as email, telephone, or consultations.
How Effective Is Telepsychiatry?
Considering the telepsychiatry research, there is a good amount of evidence to show its effectiveness for various conditions. The American Psychiatry Association highlights that remote psychiatry improves treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction. Most patients find telepsychiatry effective and consider the process a viable alternative to traditional one-on-one treatment.
Additional research has also found telepsychiatry to be a practical and cost-friendly approach to treatment for mental and behavioral health. Telepsychiatry is further equivalent to in-person psychiatric services in terms of the following:
