CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: WE ARE FULLY OPERATIONAL VIA VIDEO-LINK. NEW PATIENTS WELCOME. PRESCRIPTIONS HOME DELIVERED. STAY SAFE!
We use doxy.me as our tele-psychiatry platform because it is secure, encrypted and designed for therapists.
Log on to the Doxy.me link a few minutes ahead of your appointment and wait in the virtual waiting room. Dr. Levin will let you in at the appointment time.
Research shows that virtual visits are as effective as face-to-face therapy.
You can connect with your mobile phone or computer.
Prescriptions are delivered electronically to your pharmacy where you can have them delivered or picked up.
Virtual Visit Etiquette:
The aim is to make the appointment as close to the spirit of an office visit as possible.
Privacy is important. Make sure you are in a room where no-one can listen in. Use headphones, if possible.
Sit at a desk or table or in a comfortable chair. Speaking from your bed is not appropriate.
Lean your phone against books or your computer. The best angle is eye level or slightly above. We try to avoid the nostril angle!
Dress respectfully in comfortable clothes but not pajamas.
If there is an internet problem, plan B is FaceTime (iPhone users), Google Meet or telephone.

Hello, I’m Doctor Levin
Depression & Anxiety Expert
Welcome to my Psychiatry Center. We are depression and anxiety experts. Our center is the first of its kind based on the principles of collaborative care – we aim to improve both psychological and overall physical wellness. We provide warm and empathic care. And we know our stuff. Research-proven CBT and Gottman Method couples therapy are standard. We use the latest medications, genetic testing and online psychological testing. We know you are busy and that life sometimes happens. That why we can conduct sessions via a secure video platform and prescribe electronically directly to your pharmacy.
