As of March 16th, 2020, Mendel Psychological Associates is starting to offer Telehealth services to its clients located in 35 states. Telehealth by SimplePractice is a HIPPA compliant video conferencing service that allows a client to meet with a therapist using a desktop computer, laptop or smart phone.

To schedule a Telehealth session, please call or email our office just like you would for an in-person appointment. When a Telehealth appointment is scheduled with our practice, expect to receive an email confirmation along with the link to join the Telehealth session.

Clients can chose how often they want to use Telehealth services, it could be occasionally as family's schedule change, or exclusively for people that want to avoid commute.

Privacy

How should I prepare my space for a Telehealth appointment?

Identify a suitable room that is quiet, private, and free of distractions. To keep background noise to a minimum, make sure to close any doors, shut windows, turn off the television, and keep loud pets in another room if possible. Consider hanging a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door to avoid interruptions.

Is Telehealth private?

Just like a face-to-face appointment, your Telehealth visit will be private and confidential.

Will the appointments be recorded?

None of our appointments will ever be recorded or stored.
