Welcome Back, College Students!
You only have a limited time when you’re back in town. With your Vyvanse, you can keep on task, concentrate, and get through the coursework, but you keep running out of your medications at school.
How am I supposed to get to an office when I’m in class all day, plus clubs, sorority, work, and sports?
Do I really have to come in for an office visit when my dose doesn’t ever change?
AN EASIER WAY FOR ADHD TREATMENT
You take Adderall, Vyvanse, Ritalin, or another stimulant for ADHD or ADD, but find it challenging to keep taking time out of your busy life to get to an office every month. You take off work or class, sit in traffic, wait in a crowded waiting room, just for a brief visit to refill the same medication. That ten-minute appointment now turned into an hour or longer chunk of your day, wasting your already limited time. Now, after one in-person visit, the follow up visits are done using an app similar to Skype or FaceTime for that visit.
Picture, you’re down to your last few tabs, you pop online and make an appointment that week, on your lunch break, that evening, or weekend. Prescriptions are sent right to your pharmacy, no handing in papers, just show up to the pharmacy when it’s ready.
Welcome to the convenience of TelePsychiatry. In this innovative psychiatry practice, after one in-person visit in Illinois, we can do your monthly visits from your phone in your dorm, car (not driving, of course), office, anywhere you are located.
On your Thanksgiving or Christmas break, you can take a trip out to our Bloomingdale, IL office, where we do a full psychiatric evaluation. After that, you can conveniently self-schedule in advance or even at the last minute. You may text me in between visits for any concerns or questions about your medications.
After the initial visit, the ADHD visits are $99 monthly.
