EMPIRE PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES INTEGRATIVE MENTAL HEALTH
Important Message to Our Empire Psychiatric Services Community regarding COVID-19 Precautions.
EMPIRE PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES ( PANICFREENY) IS COMMITTED TO YOUR WELL-BEING AND THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR MENTAL HEALTH. WE WILL REMAIN BY YOUR SIDE AS YOUR TRUSTED MENTAL HEALTH PROVIDERS.
Your physical health is as important to us as your mental health, and in account of the COVID-19/ CoronaVirus outbreak directly affecting our community, Empire Psychiatric Services has elected to provide all services via Telehealth for the next two weeks. This will affect all in-person appointments scheduled between 3/16/2020 through 3/27/2020 only in the fact that your appointments will be via video call using a HIPAA Compliant program, Doxy.me. Insurances in New York have elected to cover Telehealth services for all members and standard mental health copays will apply. To learn more about Empire Psychiatric Services ’s telemedicine information, please visit our Telemedicine FAQ Page.
This decision was not made lightly and it is meant to lessen the risk of virus outbreak passed to our patients. We can only guarantee your scheduled appointment time, however our administrative staff will do everything possible to support your schedule changes.
If you are a new client, a member of our administrative staff will be in touch with you prior to your appointment to collect needed demographic and history information your provider will need to review prior to your appointment.
In case of medical emergency, please dial 9-1-1. We encourage you to follow CDC guidelines
(www.cdc.gov) and reach out to your primary care physician with any concerning symptoms. We thank you for your continued support and understanding as the current situation rapidly evolves. Our office remains dedicated to supporting you, our community. As a gentle reminder, please remember to wash your hands, stay hydrated with water, eat nutritious foods, and ensure you take your medication as directed by your prescriber.
If you have any questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at 718-236-0700.
I want to personally thank you for the kindness and support you continue to show Empire Psychiatric Services through the years.
In Support & With Gratitude,
Dr. Vorobyev, Medical Director & Empire Psychiatric Services Staff
