Among the growing shortage of medical specialists, psychiatric physicians are possibly the tata States comes at a time when the need for psychiatric treatment and behavioral health programs has never been higher.
Providing care for a patient who has complex mental health issues can be time-consuming and stressful. Adding a specialist to the care team lets primary care physicians focus on physical health needs. Both types of care work synergistically to enhance the patient’s overall health.
TeleMed2U is working to increase access to behavioral health specialists by using telemedicine technology. TeleMed2U is a completely telemedicine-based, multi-specialty group of physicians and certified physician assistants.
Our team of psychiatric physicians and certified physician assistants provide video and telephone consultations that meet the highest standards of care and ease of patient access. Our behavioral health services clients include:

TeleMed2U’s mental wellness model is wide ranging, and includes skill-building in various aspects that are key to mental health. Our specialists don’t just prescribe medication for patients, although that can be a valuable tool. Patients are also taught how to improve their nutritional intake, incorporate exercise into their daily routine, and learn how to build socialization and relationship skills. Our holistic, evidence-based approach can prevent future mental or behavioral problems, as well as teach patients how to function without medication, if possible.
TeleMed2U has been an outstanding partner of Partnership HealthPlan of California. TeleMed2U has helped PHC expand access to specialty services via telehealth across parts of rural California. Bringing amazing Specialists virtually into local health centers to serve our members specialty care needs is an invaluable service to provide timely care that may not be available locally.
