If it’s your first appointment, Dr. Bekker provides an evaluation of your mental health. Assessments are slightly longer than your regular appointments and might feel like an interview. Dr. Bekker asks you lots of questions to get to know you and look for signs of mental health conditions.

Dr. Bekker also offers counseling services through telemedicine. Your sessions are very similar to what you would experience in the office, but you use a video conference to talk.
If medication is part of your treatment plan, you meet with Dr. Bekker regularly to review your symptoms. She can make sure that your prescription is working for you and adjust it if necessary.
You might want to use telemedicine services for many reasons. For example, you might have trouble taking time off work or getting childcare to attend in-office appointments. If you don’t feel well or are getting over an illness, you might want to avoid waiting rooms or public places.
Telemedicine is convenient — it saves you time and money. You don’t need to take time off work or waste time traveling through the city. You also don’t need to spend money on gas, parking, public transportation, or rideshare to get to your appointment.
If you have other responsibilities like childcare or eldercare, you don’t have to worry about (or pay for) someone else to take care of your family while you’re out.
