What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine allows you to receive your mental health and psychiatry services from the comfort of home (or wherever you happen to be). You can skip traveling to the office or paying for childcare. Instead, you can meet with Bobbi via videoconferencing using your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Bobbi offers comprehensive telemedicine services for adults from offices in San Antonio, Texas, and St. Petersburg, Florida.

What services can I get through telemedicine?

You can get all the same mental health services that you receive in the office, including:

Initial consultation and psychiatric assessment

New patients can have their first appointment through telemedicine. You only need to register online and complete the appropriate forms for your medical history and insurance information, then Bobbi sends you an appointment time and instructions for reaching her online.

If you’re familiar with Zoom or other video conference platforms, you already know that meeting through telemedicine is like being in the office. You can sit and talk with Bobbi from the screen of your electronic device. 

She reviews your medical history, learns about your symptoms, and performs a psychiatric evaluation. Then she talks with you about your goals and develops a tailored treatment plan that meets your unique mental health care needs.

Medication management

Bobbi prescribes your psychiatric medications during your telemedicine appointments. She sends the prescription directly to your local pharmacy, where you can pick it up at your convenience.

You can also schedule ongoing medication management appointments through telemedicine. When you take psychiatric medications, you have regular follow-up appointments. These appointments are essential because they allow Bobbi to monitor your progress and determine if she needs to adjust the type or dose of your medication.


As part of your comprehensive care, Bobbi provides psychotherapy (talk therapy), another essential mental health service available through telemedicine.

How do I pay for telemedicine?

In Florida and Texas, Medicaid, Medicare, and most private health insurers cover telemedicine appointments. However, you may have a deductible, or your insurance may have limits, so you should check with your provider to verify what services they cover and how much they pay.

If you need mental health services, call Puentes Medical Consultants or request an appointment online today.
