Our Online Psychiatrist Approach
- An ideal virtual psychiatrist is board-certified, licensed, insured, and adheres to APA guidelines and the best standards of care just as if he or she sees a patient in person.
- Online psychiatrists should be able to save patients’ notes securely on HIPAA-compliant electronic health records (EHR) and e-prescribe medications to your local pharmacy.
- A good therapeutic connection between the doctor and the patient is crucial for effective therapy, whether in person or online. It is also important that the psychiatrist works with the patient and assists them on their path to symptom alleviation and rehabilitation.
- Empathy, comprehension, communication, and collaboration between psychiatrists and patients are critical for successful treatment results.
Our online psychiatrist follows an integrative approach to psychiatric care by taking nutrition, genetics, medical, hormonal, environmental, and dynamic factors into consideration. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, CBT, Family and Marital Therapy aspects are considered during the consultation.
Additionally, we offer online
- Forensic psychiatric evaluations with care for the best outcomes
- Confidential mental health evaluations for clinical treatment, employment, and court
At Gaba Telepsychiatry, the online setting enables longer visits to ensure better symptom management. At the same time, our online psychiatrist prescribes psychiatric medication with the utmost care to ensure the effective resolution of symptoms while minimizing side-effects.

Dr. Gundu Reddy is a board-certified online psychiatrist who has worked in clinical psychiatry for fifteen years and forensic psychiatry for 10 years. She also has training in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and medication management.
Dr. Reddy has a strong interest in integrative psychiatry and thinks that many aspects, such as ambient and dynamic factors, medical disease, nutrition and hormones, and genetic and developmental factors, should be taken into account when diagnosing and treating a patient.
Many individuals receive substandard care due to incomplete evaluation, and an integrative approach is needed to provide optimum clinical improvement. In addition, Dr. Reddy believes the decision to take psychiatric medication should not be taken lightly and psychiatric medication should be prescribed with the utmost care. However, the goal of medication management is to achieve maximum efficacy with minimum side effects where gentle titration is required.
Dr. Reddy believes that in most cases psychiatric illness is treatable, and most people can achieve significant improvement in symptoms, as well as social and occupational functioning, with high-quality and consistent care. However, her goal is to provide the best possible treatment to patients in a telepsychiatry or online psychiatry setting and achieve the same standards of care as if seeing the patient in person.

FAQs on Online Psychiatrist
Can an online psychiatrist prescribe controlled substances?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, an emergency order was issued stating that online psychiatrists could e-prescribe controlled substances. However, the rules differ from state to state and a psychiatrist must comply with state and federal guidelines while prescribing controlled substances, such as stimulants, anxiety, or insomnia medications.
If your state does not allow the prescription of controlled substances by an online psychiatrist, a consult can be sent to your PCP. Most PCPs can prescribe controlled substances provided there is a thorough consultation with a psychiatrist, documenting the risks versus the benefits, and clinical appropriateness.
At times, the psychiatrists online may not prescribe a controlled substance online and may recommend seeing a psychiatrist in person or would benefit from alternative treatments.
Can an online psychiatrist send prescriptions?
Yes. Virtual psychiatrists can e-prescribe medications provided they are clinically appropriate.
Is there any difference between an online psychiatrist consultation and an in-person psychiatrist consultation?
There is no difference as both should strictly adhere to the same standards of care. Seeing a psychiatrist online means you are not restricted to seeing someone local to you. Also, you can attend the online psychiatrist appointments via video conferencing from the comfort of your home, without taking time off work.
Do online psychiatrists treat teenagers?
Not all psychiatrists find it convenient to treat teenagers. This is where online psychiatry plays a significant opportunity to find the psychiatrist that your teenager feels comfortable with while addressing their specific needs. Especially, older teenagers especially benefit from online services due to their busy educational commitments. Research studies have found that teenagers respond well to online psychiatrists.
