Our healthcare providers at PsychMYway are experts in mental health. Just like in a traditional psychiatric office that people physically walk into, we specialize in diagnosing and treating people with mental illnesses. However, we see our patients using a secure live video conferencing program from the comforts of their own home, work or even primary care provider's office. This helps many patients feel more at ease and removes barriers that typically might prevent them from seeking or being able to continue psychiatric care. Prescriptions are sent electronically to the patient's pharmacy (if any controlled medications are prescribed, patients are required to have one face-to-face visit with the provider prior to getting their medication filled).
Please contact us directly with any questions, comments, or scheduling inquiries you may have. IMPORTANT: If you are considering suicide or if you or any other person may be in danger please call 1-800-273-TALK or 911
