We are a group of highly qualified, Board Certified psychiatrists licensed to practice medicine in the State of California and many other states. We work exclusively through Telepsychiatry and TeleMental Health. Our psychiatrists have years of training and experience (outpatient, inpatient, emergency/crisis) in general adult psychiatry, and many have specialty training in Child/Adolescent, Addiction, Forensic, Emergency, Consultation & Liaison, and Geriatric psychiatry.
Our main objective is two fold:
1. To provide psychiatric care to underserved and remote populations via HIPAA compliant, secure teleconferencing equipment and software; and
2. To greatly enhance CONTINUITY OF CARE for both the patients and the treatment providers (for agencies as a whole, for patients, and for individual physicians/clinicians).
Telepsychiatry and TeleMental Health Care can serve to meet or enhance patient access to care in any situation where there is a patient with a psychiatric or mental health need and a local psychiatrist is not readily available. In order to accomplish this, we contract with Public Service (City, County and State Mental Health Agencies, ACT Programs, Hospitals, Law Enforcement, Federal Mental Health Service Programs, and Residential Mental Health Treatment Centers) and private entities (HMOs, PPOs, and Private Insurance Providers) currently in twelve states throughout the United States in order to provide the highest quality, evidence-based telepsychiatry services. We do not provide services directly to the public.
“The clients and staff are very happy with the services you and your team have been providing. On behalf of our clients and staff, thank you for being a part of our team.”
"You have been great to work with. I have appreciated how flexible you are and how pro-active you have been in solving the challenges we have faced. You have really been a team player!"
