In light of COVID 19 events with implemented closures and quarantine, we have been offering a telepsychiatry appointment since March 19, 2020. Since June 1, 2020, our office in Huntingtown, Maryland, was re-opened on Wednesday for in-office visits and Initial Evaluations.
Telepsychiatry Appointments are available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
In-Office Appointments are available Wednesdays only.
We will continue to offer telepsychiatry appointments indefinitely.
The phone consultations as follow-up appointments are mostly reserved for older people, for someone who has difficulties navigating computer/mobile devices or has no equipment (computer or smartphone) to arrange a telepsychiatry session. The reason phone consultation can not be utilized regularly is that the phone line is not compliant with HIPAA and HITECH requirements, and we can not guarantee confidentiality during the phone conversation.
