- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Anger management
- Substance abuse disorders
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Panic attacks

You might prefer telepsychiatry over in-person visits because of the convenience of seeing providers from the comfort of home, at your office at work, in your car, or while traveling. You reap the benefit of complete confidentiality during each telepsychiatry appointment.
Is telepsychiatry right for me?
If you suspect you have, or were diagnosed with, a mental health disorder and need treatment for your condition, consider telepsychiatry instead of in-person visits. You might prefer the convenience of telepsychiatry appointments or like the idea of complete privacy without exposure to other patients.
What should I expect during telepsychiatry visits?
Your Ultimate Psychiatry provider calls you on your phone, computer, tablet, or other electronic devices during scheduled telepsychiatry appointment times. They complete the following:
Medical history review
Your specialist reviews your medical history, discusses medications you may take, and asks about your family history of mental health disorders.
During a psychiatric evaluation at Ultimate Psychiatry, your specialist asks a series of questions about your lifestyle, mental health status, and symptoms. Examples include feeling hopeless, anxious, nervous, fearful, or constantly sad, and difficulty concentrating.
After determining which type of mental health condition you have (if any), your Ultimate Psychiatry provider can diagnose your condition and develop an effective treatment plan.
Some of the mental health treatments available at Ultimate Psychiatry include counseling, medication prescriptions, and lifestyle changes. Your provider works with you to develop a treatment that matches your lifestyle, preferences, and needs.
How often should I schedule telepsychiatry visits?
Follow your provider’s instructions regarding the frequency of telepsychiatry visits to schedule. They offer recommendations based on the severity of your mental health condition and how effective your treatment is. Make an appointment any time you’d like to speak with a licensed mental health professional.
