We will be offering televideo appointments ONLY. No in-person visits will be occurring at this time. We have decided to continue televideo appointments until Janaury 2021.
You can log into the televideo website from a home computer, tablet or cell phone. Please have a good internet connection and a place that you feel comfortable talking with the provider.
Most insurances are authorizing tele-video appointments. Please double check with yours. If they are authorizing then you would pay your normal deductible/copayment that you would see in person.
If you were already scheduled for a new intake appointment, you have been contacted with further instructions. If you have not been scheduled yet, we are holding on new intake appointments at this time to allow for availability for our current clients. Please call the office to be put on the wait-list and we will try to schedule as soon as possible.
Our telemedicine visits make it easy to fit mental health care into your busy life. This should give you all the information to decide if this may work for you and how to get started.
Eligible Clients: Any client who resides in the State of Texas and has a desktop/tablet/smart device that has access to a web browser.
Cost: Insurance is approving most telemedicine appointments. Please check with yours if this is a possibility. Cash cost: $300/hr (first appointment), $150 follow up appointments.
