During the current evolving public health emergency situation and until it is resolved, I will provide all services for current patients virtually, using a telehealth platform by Zoom Video Communications https://zoom.us/. In order to use Zoom, you will need a high-speed internet connection, a computer with speakers and camera for videoconferencing. To ensure privacy and confidentiality, the computer you use should be private and accessible by you only. You will need to make sure you are in a location that is private. You should not be using public wi-fi connection or your cell phone for the Zoom session. In order for me to connect with you via Zoom, I will need your email address, which you may send through the contact form on this site. You will receive an email with an invitation link. By accepting a Zoom invitation, you indicate that you consent to the use of telehealth services. You may decide to withdraw your consent at any time. If for any reason you are unable to use the Zoom platform, or are uncomfortable with it, you may choose to connect by telephone.
Instructions on how to join a Zoom meeting
You may join the meeting by clicking the link provided in your email under “Join Zoom Meeting.” You may also paste the link in your browser. Alternatively, you may go to https://zoom.us/join, paste the numeric meeting ID in the window “Meeting ID or Personal Link Name”, and click “join.” You may want to review the brief 2 minute instruction video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIkCmbvAHQQ#action=share
All information during the interaction will remain confidential. There will be no audio or video recording of the session. If unable to connect to a session or if we are disconnected, I will try to reconnect and/or call you on the phone on record. If you have to cancel and reschedule a session, please let me know by phone at least 24 hours in advance. As with in-person visits, any appointments not cancelled with sufficient notice (at least 24 hours) will be charged at the full fee, unless you experience a genuine emergency.
Email and text messaging are not considered confidential and secure forms of communication. Therefore, please refrain from using them to share any confidential information. I will not use text messaging for any type of communication. Email will be used only for non-clinical interactions, i.e. to initiate contact, make Zoom appointments.
