East Coast Telepsychiatry - Remote Access Mental Health Care

Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue.

Is Mental Health Important?

Yes! According to the Center for Disease Control, mental and physical health are equally important for overall health.

Mental health issues such as depression may lead to increased risk for health issues, such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.

Mental health includes Emotional, Psychological, and Social Well-Being

While mental health has always been important, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for quality services. The pandemic has caused a sharp increase in behavioral health issues and left many with a feeling of despair.

Seeking psychiatric and psychological help as soon as possible reduces disruptive, inappropriate, or unusual behaviors you may be experiencing so that you may get back to a healthy life.

Completing Your Intake Forms and Payment2022-08-17T22:57:23+00:00

East Coast Telepsychiatry is committing to help our patients to the best of our ability.  To do so, we ask that you complete all forms in their entirety.  All forms are emailed or can be texted to you and can be completed in typically about ten minutes.  You will receive information from EAST COAST TELEPSYCHIATRY, KAREO (our medical operations system) or STRIPE (our payment processor).  Once your appointment is made, please check your email and SPAM folders.  If any of the emails are in SPAM, please mark as “Not Spam”.  All forms and payment must be completed at least 48 hours PRIOR to your appointment.  For appointments made within the 48-hour window, all forms and payments must be completed at least TWO HOURS PRIOR to your appointment.

Once all forms are completed in their entirety, you then submit them back to us by simply hitting the “COMPLETE and SUBMIT” button. Your information is then reviewed and entered directly into your patient chart.  Please be honest when completing your forms.  We need as much detail as possible, so that we may fully understand your Mental Health needs and so that we can offer the best care available.  If there are questions that do not apply, please put “N/A”, or if you are uncertain about a question, you can simply put “UNKNOWN”.  Please ensure to upload the photo of your driver’s license or state issued identification card so that we may authorize prescriptions if they are needed.  If you do not have either, we will address that issue on a case-by-case basis.

Therapy Programs2022-10-15T20:18:05+00:00

We have several Therapy programs at East Coast Telepsychiatry.  All Therapy appointments are conducted via Telepsychiatry/Remote access only.  We do NOT have “In the Office” visits.  To conduct your visit, you need a camera and microphone equipped desktop, laptop, or a smartphone.  Once your appointment is made and confirmed, we will provide you with a “link”.  Five minutes prior to your scheduled appointment, you will simply click the link provided.  Once you are in the virtual waiting room, your therapist will join in shortly.  Our goal is to be on-time on all visits.  We ask that you help us to do so by completing all forms and make any appropriate payment at least 24 hours prior to your visit, and that you be on-time for you scheduled visit.  We offer Individual Therapy sessions as we all Group Therapy offerings.  Our programs cover Grief, Depression, Stress, Anxiety, and many other areas affecting our mental health. Different packages are available other than those listed if deemed appropriate between yourself and our Therapist, Jennifer Griffin.  If you have specific question about our Therapy programs, please call our office at (843) 299-2033 and choose extension 5 to speak with Ms. Griffin.

Therapy Pricing:

30 Minute Individual Therapy Sessions = $60.00

60 Minute Individual Therapy Sessions = $120.00

Group Sessions are typically between 45 and 60 minutes.  Each group session is only $40.00 per person and is also conducted by remote access from the comfort of your own home, workplace, or even while on vacation.  There may be as few as two people in a group, or as many as ten, depending on the day, time of the group, and scheduling.

We also offer a GROUP THERAPY PACKAGE.  The package includes four sessions for the discounted price of $120.00.  This price is for the people who are committed to bettering themselves and saves a person $40.00 per month.  We are a cash/self-pay practice and unfortunately do not accept insurance currently.  We are however in the process of securing the acceptance of the most common insurances used today and expect to begin insurance acceptance in approximately 90 days.  All visits are conducted via Telepsychiatry/Remote access.

Mental Health/Psychiatric Visits2022-11-18T15:27:12+00:00

The “New Patient” is only $229.00 and includes: A Full Assessment, Evaluation, and Diagnosis by our provider, Ms. Pharr. Ms. Amy Pharr is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with 28 active years of experience working in the healthcare industry. We then implement a treatment program that will be created specifically for each person. We are a full-service practice and use medication management if needed, based on the decisions made between our patients and East Coast Telepsychiatry. New patient visits consist of a video session, typically 10-30 minutes, depending on severity. After the video visit, the provider completes your note, sends prescriptions, and completes your chart, which makes the entire process 45-60 minutes for our staff. If you have “In-Network” insurance, we verify your co-pay, deductibles, and coverage and even process your claim. If you are out of network, we can provide receipts for your payment that you can use to try and seek reimbursement from your carrier. All visits are conducted via Telepsychiatry/Remote access.

A “Follow-up” visit is only $129.00. These appointments generally last 10-20 minutes, and are typically monthly, or as decided between yourself and your provider, Ms. Amy Pharr. Follow-up visits can be as often as needed, or as little as needed, depending on your case. The Follow-up visit will include a complete review of your specific situation. Together we will evaluate progress made and discuss any issues that you feel may help with your program. We will then either continue your current treatment program or make any adjustments as needed to strengthen your Mental Health. Any medications prescribed can then be renewed, discontinued, or adjusted as, and if needed.
