Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine uses technological devices, including computers, smartphones, and tablets, to connect doctors and patients remotely. Thanks to recent advancements in technology, you can schedule face-to-face appointments with Dr. Marquez-Floyd without being physically present in her office.

Who needs telemedicine?

Telemedicine is beneficial to anybody who can’t regularly make it to an in-person appointment. You may not have regular access to the psychiatric care you need if you:

  • Live in a rural area
  • Don’t have access to reliable transportation
  • Have no access to childcare
  • Feel extreme anxiety leaving the house
  • Have a very busy work schedule

With telemedicine, you can access the care you need when you need it most.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

There are many advantages of telemedicine, particularly if you don't have regular access to mental health care. The most important benefits of telemedicine are:


If you live in a rural area, it may not be possible for you to see Dr. Marquez-Floyd on a regular basis. Telemedicine allows you to connect with her from the comfort of your own home, so you don’t have to wait for a later in-person appointment.


Many people simply don’t feel comfortable in an in-office environment. If you feel more comfortable, relaxed, and willing to talk at home, then telemedicine may be right for you.


Finding reliable transportation or childcare for your in-office visit can add up. With telemedicine, you can eliminate those extra costs for more affordable mental health care.


Telemedicine allows more flexibility in your schedule than conventional in-office appointments because you don’t have to take time out of your day to drive to the office.
