Skypiatrist is a telepsychiatry practice whose providers specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety and panic disorders, bipolar disorder, OCD, and PTSD.

The providers at Skypiatrist exclusively offer medication management, meaning that although they do not offer talk therapy, they can work with clients who are already seeing a psychotherapist as part of an overall treatment plan. The providers at Skypiatrist are dedicated to providing high-quality and efficient care to their patients; they go above and beyond to respect the time and privacy of their patients, and provide all services through a customized secure, HIPAA-compliant video chat.


About

What services does your practice offer?

Medication management

What are your practice's specialties?

At Skypiatrist, we provide medication-management for psychiatric conditions, including all mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychotic disorders.

Why should I choose your practice?

Skypiatrist is a telepsychiatry practice that was launched in 2016 because we saw a need for high-quality, personalized psychiatric services that were also convenient for patients long before the pandemic. We have been doing it longer than everyone, and we do it better than everyone. We have worked out all the kinks for smooth, seamless experience. . Due in large part to the Coronavirus pandemic, the need for convenient, online care has only increased. Unlike other telemedicine services, at Skypiatrist, you'll see the same doctor at every appointment to ensure that you get the care you deserve from someone who knows you. Our medical doctors see you where you are - at home, work, or even while traveling. Your appointment will always start as scheduled, and you'll never waste precious time stuck in traffic, sitting in a waiting room, or standing in line at the pharmacy - we'll send your prescriptions directly to them.

How does payment work at your practice?

At Skypiatrist, we are in-network with Aetna, Cigna, Oscar, Oxford, and United plans. If you do not have one of these health insurances, our fees range from $350-$450 for initial appointments and $200-$250 for follow-up appointments.
