Ohio Psychiatric Services is excited to announce that we are now offering Telepsychiatry visits, a more convenient appointment option, which allows our patients to have a visit with their medical provider from the comfort of their home or office.  Our TeleHealth platform allows our patients to have a secure two-way video visit with their provider using a home computer or using an App from a phone. 

To schedule a TeleHealth visit please contact our office.

TeleHealth Steps for patients:

Ensure you are enabled for our Patient Portal and know your username and password when your appointment is booked. Access the Patient Portal

  1. The first step is to call and schedule it with your provider. For many people today, telemedicine is a convenient and effective way to see their healthcare provider.
  2. Before beginning your TeleHealth, make sure that you: Have an active Patient Portal account, with username and password 
  3. Set aside a secure, private location
  4. “Arrive early” by logging in to your Patient Portal. If you can’t access the Portal, you can also begin your appointment through the reminder link sent to your email.
  5. Click “Join TeleHealth” in your patient dashboard (or email reminder).
  6. Fill out any patient questionnaire,  and provide requested personal information.
  7. Click “Proceed” to check your computer’s speed and ability to support a TeleHealth. If your computer does not have a webcam (most do), you will need to attach one.
