FAQs about TeleHealth | Ohio Psychiatric Services


Frequently asked questions about telephone and video visits:

Telephone visits are conducted over the telephone. Besides the Telehealth visits through our HIPPA compliant Zoom link, video visits are also offered through Doxy.me, and Facetime during COVID 19, a service that is  available on Apple and Android devices. Our office will contact you at the phone number you provided on your health record to complete your “check-in” and provide you a specific timeframe during which your provider will evaluate you via telephone or video visit.

If you choose Doxy.me or Facetime, be sure your device is equipped with a camera and microphone (i.e. PC, MAC, Android or Apple device), and connected to Wi-Fi or set up to use your cellular data.
