About GABA Telepsychiatry

Who We Are?

GABA Telepsychiatry is a unique practice, where our US-licensed, trained, and insured urgent psychiatrist offers the closest possible approximation to traditional psychiatric services in a telepsychiatry format.

Gaba telepsychiatry is known to follow US Psychiatry guidelines and standards of care ensuring safe, ethical, legal, and effective psychiatric services.

Our aim is to provide the highest quality care to patients, who cannot access care from the urgent psychiatrist of their choice due to scheduling difficulties or geographic location.

Effective business processes, efficient back office operations, and faster software automation allow more extended visits with more focus on high-quality care.

How are we
different?

Our urgent psychiatrist offers services via a HIPAA-compliant video platform as if you were in the office. However, patients are not treated via text message or phone.

We make sure to follow the same APA guidelines similar to an in-office visit, achieving the same outcomes and safety standards. At the same time, we are not a ‘therapy on demand’ or ‘text your psychiatrist’ app.

Peer psychiatrist networks offer only supervision and guidance. However, we offer comprehensive timely services with psychotherapy modalities and medication management after screening the medical causes of illness.

Gaba Telepsychiatry stands out by combining the traditional practice models and standards of care with some concierge features including care provider liaison, extensive patient visits, and your dedicated liaison to assist with scheduling, billing, lab work, as well as prescriptions.

Concierge Features A Traditional
Service

Psychiatric treatment protocols have been developed and refined over hundreds of years, through trial and This is why it is essential that they are adhered to where possible .

Before the emergence of telemedicine the only option was to see a psychiatrist was in the office. Although telepsychiatry is a more practical option for most people, it important not to lose quality of care when conducting psychiatry visits in a telemedicine setting. Ideally a telepsychiatry visit should be the same as an office visit. exactly the same rules, regulations and standards of care should apply.

Some concierge features which have been added, include the dedicated liaison for assistance with billing, scheduling, lab work, and prescription, as although automated, requires more patient initiative than an office visit.

Slightly longer psychiatrist visits return to a more traditional model and are one of the benefits of the private and group psychiatrist practice model over large clinics and hospitals, where layers of corporate overheads and insurance cuts leads to shorter patient visits to cut costs.

Traditional Psychiatry Visits Made Easy

Traditionally, patients would sometimes travel for hours to see a psychiatrist. If unable to attend their appointment, they will still be charged for the visit.

Patients would have to use up their sick days or take time away from their business to attend appointments. Finding a psychiatrist on evenings or weekends was hard. People who traveled for work or took long summer vacations would have to miss appointments and would have trouble obtaining prescriptions.

It is essential that patients are not punished for having a productive and full life. The goal is to provide high-quality treatment for everyone, regardless of their lifestyle or location.

Billing, scheduling, and inquiries can be conducted through a patient portal. Prescriptions can be sent directly to the local pharmacy via Electronic Health Records, or can be mailed to the home. A dedicated liaison is available for assistance should there be difficulty with any of these processes.

Consult an urgent psychiatrist if symptoms are severe, disabling, or causing distress.

Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation resulting in the loss of ovarian follicle development. It is considered to occur when 12 menstrual cycles are missed. Menopausal transition, or perimenopause, is the period between the onset of irregular menstrual cycles and the last menstrual period. This period is marked by fluctuations in reproductive hormones 3 and is characterized by the following:

Menstrual irregularities
Prolonged and heavy menstruation intermixed with episodes of amenorrhea
Decreased fertility
Depression
Anxiety
Problems with attention, concentration, and memory
Vasomotor symptoms
Insomnia
Some of these symptoms may emerge 4 years before menses cease, with a perimenopausal mean age of onset of 47.5 years. During the menopausal transition, estrogen levels decline and levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) increase. Postmenopause is the phase following the last menstrual period.

A. In the majority of menstrual cycles, at least five symptoms must be present in the final week before the onset of menses then it will start to improve within a few days after the beginning of menses, and become minimal or absent in the week post menses.

B. One (or more) of the following symptoms must be present:
1. Marked affective lability (e.g., mood swings: feeling suddenly sad or tearful, or increased sensitivity to rejection).
2. Marked irritability, anger, or increased interpersonal conflicts.
3. Marked depressed mood, feelings of hopelessness, or self-deprecating thoughts.
4. Marked anxiety, tension, and/or feelings of being keyed up or on edge.


C. One (or more) of the following symptoms must additionally be present, to reach a total of five signs when combined with symptoms from Criterion B above.

D. The symptoms are associated with clinically significant distress or interference with work, school, usual social activities, or relationships with others (e.g., avoidance of social activities; decreased productivity and efficiency at work, school, or home).


E. The disturbance is not merely a worsening of the symptoms of another disorder, such as major depressive disorder, panic disorder, persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia), or a personality disorder (although it may co-occur with any of these disorders).


F. Prospective daily ratings should confirm criterion A during at least two symptomatic cycles. (Note: The diagnosis may be made provisionally before this confirmation).

Specifiers: With anxious distress comorbidity of diabetes and psychiatric disorders can present in different patterns. First, the two can present as independent conditions with no apparent direct connection. In such a scenario both are the outcome of separate and parallel pathogenic pathways. Second, the course of diabetes can be complicated by the emergence of psychiatric disorders. In such cases, diabetes contributes to the pathogenesis of mental disorders. Various biological and psychological factors mediate the onset of psychiatric disorders in such a context. Third, certain psychiatric disorders like depression and schizophrenia act as significant independent risk factors for the development of diabetes. Fourth, there could be an overlap between the clinical presentation of hypoglycemic and ketoacidosis episodes and conditions such as panic attacks. Fifth, impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes could emerge as a side effect of the medications used for psychiatric disorders. Treatment of psychiatric disorders could influence diabetes care in other ways also as discussed in subsequent sections.

Anorexia Nervosa

B. Intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat or persistent behavior that interferes with weight gain, even though at a significantly low weight.

Frequently asked questions about telepsychiatry in California.

Most Americans are not aware that their symptoms can be treatable. Hence, they continue to suffer in silence despite prolonged misery or disability. Even though they have access to care, they suffer through no fault of their own. As a result, they undergo poor work performance, relationship issues, marital discord, and health issues. Despite having the motivation to receive timely treatment, they will find an improvement in their symptoms through the right combination of medications, psychotherapy, and close medical management even if the partial resolution of symptoms can lead to a significant improvement in the quality of life with a reduction in suffering.

  • Anxiety, irritability, dysthymia, inadequate attention, fatigue, poor concentration, and loss of enjoyment in activities.
  • Anger, guilty feelings, panic attacks, agoraphobia, social phobia, generalized anxiety, compulsions, and obsessive thought.
  • Insomnia, sleeping too much, excessive drinking, binge eating, early morning waking, anorexia, loss of appetite, and paranoid feelings.
  • Seeing things, hearing voices, feelings of confusion, and excessive premenstrual dysfunction
