Finding the right psychiatrist or mental health services in your area can be challenging. For many older adults, those with medical conditions that limit mobility, and individuals living in more remote parts of the state, regularly accessing in-person mental healthcare is often impossible. The practice of Raul J. Rodriguez & Associates in Boca Raton is proud to offer telehealth psychiatry and psychotherapy for many of our patients, so they can receive the psychiatric care they need without inconvenience.
Patients at Raul J. Rodriguez MD have the option of transitioning to phone appointments once they have received their initial psychiatric evaluation. Phone appointments allow patients to continue with their preferred provider even if they are out of the area, or no longer able to easily leave their home. It is recommended that new patients still visit our office for an in-person evaluation whenever possible. However, in cases of medical crisis, such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic, initial psychiatric assessments can also be done over the phone.
The psychiatrists at Raul Rodriguez & Associates utilize HIPAA compliant video conferencing software, to ensure patient security and confidentiality. Video telepsychiatry allows our patients to receive the same level of care as they would at our office, but in the comfort of their own home. Video telepsychiatry can be accessed through laptop, tablet or smart phone. Call our office at 561-250-7208 and one of our helpful staff members can assist with arranging video or online appointments.
In addition to psychiatry, the clinical team at Dr. Rodriguez’s center for healing in Delray Beach and Boca Raton also provide teletherapy for individuals, couples, and families. Therapy sessions can be done over the phone or through a video conferencing system like Zoom. Telehealth patients can access many of the same therapeutic approaches as they would in person, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy.
Our psychiatric practice and outpatient center is dedicated to providing sorely-needed mental health services to those in need. Our doctors and therapist will work with you the best they can to meet your telemedicine needs, regardless of age, clinical needs, technological knowledge, or geography.
