Hello How May I Help You?

We provide psychiatric evaluations and medication management via videoconferencing (Psychology Today).  Medication Management means prescribing medications, checking your response to medicine, and talking about things in your life outside of medication treatment.

We are an expanding group of psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners. Psychiatrists, and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners learn and practice various therapy modalities.  However, they also diagnose and treat psychiatric conditions with prescription medications.  Our visits incorporate brief therapy, but most people find a combination of treatment with their counselor, therapist, or psychologist, along with our psychiatry visits, beneficial.

Our psychiatric evaluations assess medication treatment.  They are up to one hour long and we discuss mood, history, medical conditions, and family history to help us determine the best course of action with you.

We do not typically need full psychological or neurophysiology’s testing for prescribing medications.

Yes, medications will be sent electronically to your preferred pharmacy.  You will receive refills, so you do not run out between visits.

We believe in treating ADHD with evidence-based treatment, which includes stimulant and non-stimulant medications.

Due to telemedicine rules, this practice cannot prescribe stimulants to anyone prescribed benzodiazepines, Buprenorphine, or narcotic pain medications.

Additionally, this Online ADHD practice must adhere to the following:

  • If you are changing providers, your new prescription medication will be fillable 30 days after the State’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program shows the last controlled medication was filled.
  • We cannot authorize early refills of controlled medications.
  • There is a random urine drug screen during treatment.
  • MONTHLY telehealth visits are needed for continuation/refills of controlled medications.
  • We cannot prescribe above the FDA-indicated doses.

You will need an internet connection.  You will be sent the telehealth link before the appointment. You can also find the telehealth link on the website.

New appointments are scheduled for one hour and follow-up appointments are for thirty minutes.  If you have questions or concerns after or between your visits, you can directly text us.

Appointment Cash-only visits are scheduled for up to 15 minutes.

You can reschedule your appointment online.  There will be no charge when you reschedule your appointment. New patients who do not complete their Registration and Intake Forms 48 hours before their appointment will have to reschedule. This allows the provider ample time to review your case before your appointment.

Due to the high demand for services, patients must honor the time reserved for their appointment. Therefore, appointments canceled less than 48 -business hours will be charged. No show would be charged a fee $100 for an Initial appointment and $50 for a follow-up appointment. Failure to complete the new intake paperwork and then showing up for appointment, you will be charged full fee and the service you paid for will be forfeited. An appointment cannot be made without the new intake paperwork.
