Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Advances in technology have made telemedicine a viable option to receive many health care services from the comfort of your home or another private space. Dr. Gomez uses a private video conferencing program to provide appointments.

While meeting in person helps build rapport, all new and existing patients are welcome to use the telemedicine service. It provides a convenient option if you can’t leave your home or have other scheduling conflicts that have been getting in the way of your access to mental health care.

What services are available through telemedicine?

Dr. Gomez offers a wide range of mental health services via telemedicine. Her patients currently benefit from:

Consultations

Dr. Gomez provides psychiatric consultations through her telemedicine program at Integrated Mind Medicine. A consultation is similar to what you would experience during an in-office appointment, but you talk to Dr. Gomez online. The video allows her to observe your physical well-being and body language while she performs your initial evaluation. 

At the end of your telemedicine consultation, she can still provide prescriptions. Instead of giving you a prescription slip, she calls your pharmacy or sends the prescription electronically so you can pick it up at your convenience. 

Medication management

When you take medication for psychiatric health issues, you need to have routine follow-ups with Dr. Gomez. These medication management appointments allow her to see how you respond to the treatment and adjust your prescription as necessary. With telemedicine, you can have these short appointments at your convenience.

Psychotherapy

Dr. Gomez also offers psychotherapy and counseling services through telemedicine. You just need a private room and a reliable internet connection to have your appointment online. Aside from talking through a video conference, your appointments are very similar to an in-office meeting. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine for mental health?

Telemedicine provides convenient access to mental health care that can save you time and money. You can schedule telemedicine appointments at your convenience, so you don’t have to take time off work. You don’t have to waste time sitting in Miami traffic or the waiting room. 

Additionally, you don’t need to pay for:

  • Gas
  • Parking
  • Public transportation
  • Child or elder care
