Driving on Oahu, especially with road closures and construction can be really inconvenient, especially if you are coming from the North Shore to seek treatment.  We have been offering telepsych sessions since 2018.  With a modest amount of tech savvy, you can install zoom on your phone or computer and hold your appointment from the convenience of home or office.  You need a good wi-fi connection and also either a smartphone, a desktop. or laptop computer with a webcam and a microphone (which are often sold as one inexpensive gadget).  It is a very minor cost if you don’t already have a webcam/microphone.  When it is time for your appointment, you simply log in from wherever you are.  We provide instructions to help you be ready for the first appointment.  Many patients are using this service and enjoy the convenience of not having to drive, especially during COVID-19 days and stay-at-home orders or quarantine.  This is a good way to seek care, overcoming certain circumstances that could normally prevent you from attending an appointment.
