What can I expect from telepsychiatry?

You can expect personalized and comprehensive care through telepsychiatry at Shah Psychiatry. Before making any specific recommendations, Dr. Shah conducts an essential 60 to 90-minute psychiatric assessment. Clients that would like to pursue the Integrative treatment program require a 2.5-hour psychiatric assessment. 

A link to a HIPPA secure, private video call will be sent to the Client before the scheduled initial appointment. During this first visit, he takes the time to get to know you, so he can create the personalized plan you need to heal and grow. Dr. Shah asks detailed questions about your life, including concerns and goals, medical and mental health history, and family history.

A complete psychiatric medical evaluation is conducted, which can include laboratory testing. Dr. Shah also offers genetic testing through Genomind®, which helps him find a medication that can bring about change and improvement that works with your body and genetics.

Dr. Shah then works directly with you, creating a customized therapy curriculum that incorporates aspects of many psychotherapy disciplines to support healing. He talks to you about the combination of therapies that would be most helpful, such as:

  • Mindfulness-based practices
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Exposure-based therapy
  • Supportive psychotherapy
  • Existential psychotherapy
  • Positive psychology
  • Compassion-focused psychotherapy
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy

He schedules 15, 30, or 60-minute follow-up appointments based on the type of therapy and medications required. Dr. Shah’s essential psychiatric care delivered through telepsychiatry is the cornerstone of his practice. 

Dr. Shah offers Integrative psychiatric treatment as well. Clients seeking Integrative treatment will experience a dedicated program that finds ways to make small and subtle changes in lifestyle, diet, thinking, and feeling that help to use less medication, at lower doses, sometimes for a shorter period of time - due to combining multiple avenues of healing. However, if medications are indicated for symptom control, Dr. Shah will always practice with an evidence-based perspective to bring about positive outcomes. Please visit the integrative psychiatry service page for more details. 

Dr. Shah also provides new frontiers in mental health treatment with virtual reality based therapy and treatment. Please visit virtual reality service page for more details. 

Patients aren’t likely to find this level of personalization in therapy care at any other practice.
