What is telehealth?

Telehealth allows you to connect directly with Dr. Sarduy through an online platform from wherever you are. You can meet with him from the comfort of your home using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

If you’re away on business or vacation, you can meet with Dr. Sarduy, so you don’t have to miss essential therapy sessions.

You can also meet with Dr. Sarduy virtually to discuss test results or to address any questions or concerns you have about your treatment or mental health.

What happens during a telehealth appointment?

Before your telehealth appointment, South Florida Psychiatry provides you with the information you need to access the online platform.

Dr. Sarduy can use the telehealth platform to provide psychiatric counseling and evaluate the effectiveness of medications you take. He can also recommend changes to your treatment plan to support your health.

If you're experiencing symptoms or have health concerns, Dr. Sarduy can meet through the telehealth platform and determine if you need medical attention in-office or at a local hospital.
