Telemedicine Services

 

 For your convenience, Athens Behavioral Medicine is proud to announce the initiation of Telemedicine appointments using the Zoom platform.

 

Zoom is a safe, secure, and HIPAA compliant space. 

 

To use  Zoom, you will receive a link via email prior to your appointment.  If you have not received a link prior to your appointment, we can resend it to you.    

TELEMEDICINE:

  • Allows patients to have regular appointments with their provider using a webcam and microphone

  • You will need to keep a credit card on file to be charged at the time of your appointment.

  • All medications will be E-Scribed to your pharmacy.

  • You must have access to a webcam either on a phone, tablet, or a computer. Its very easy to use even if you’re not tech savy; just use your smart phone or tablet.

  • If your physician is in-network with your insurance, telemedicine is still a covered service.

  • Allows patients to avoid missed appointment fees for having to late cancel.

  • Helps patients remain compliant with their required office visits for your physician to be able to prescribe medication(s)

  • If feeling sick, you can stay at home and still have an appointment.

  • No transportation needed

  • Can eliminate childcare issues

  • Helps with taking time off work and school

  • Less time in a waiting room
