Telepsychiatry is the perfect solution for patients who don’t want to wait any longer and want to take back control of their mental health as soon as possible. Telepsychiatry helps patients set up regular appointments with a therapist and attend them from the comfort of their own homes. This shift in the psychiatry landscape is due to the remarkable progress in technologies such as video conferencing. Each patient can connect to their doctor in a fast and convenient manner using easy-to-use software. The remote treatments are as effective as in-person treatments as video and audio streams have steadily improved over time and are now offered in high definition quality, making the transition from in-person sessions to online streaming seamless and natural.

A spokesperson for Aura MD talks about its online pscyhiatrist services by saying, “Telepsychiatry is the wave of the future and it is here to stay. Due to COVID-19, several doctors switched over to telemedicine and are now catering to patients who are logging in from the comfort of their own homes. COVID-19 may have been the trigger for this change but the benefits of telepsychiatry and online psychiatric appointments will soon become evident to everyone involved and become a logical evolution for patient care. Online psychiatric appointments allow the patient to exercise complete control over the environment in which they are willing to talk and open up to their psychiatrist. They no longer have to commute to the doctor’s office and try to adjust to a setting that they may not be comfortable in. There is no risk of long travel times dimming one’s enthusiasm for a therapy session. You don’t even have to take time off work as you will be able to easily squeeze in an appointment into your daily remote working schedule. We are confident that online psychiatry sessions will compel more patients to give therapy a chance and will increase the likelihood of them pursuing their treatment for longer. The psychiatric doctors at Aura MD are proud to be a part of this sea change in the field of psychiatry and are now enthusiastically catering to their clients via telepsychiatry. We will help our patients adapt to this new paradigm and, as always, help them get the best care that they can.”
