Why can’t Talkiatry tell me if I’m a fit for their practice until after my first visit?

We want to help as many people as we can, but virtual care isn’t the best option for every condition. In order to make sure we can safely and effectively provide care for you, your doctor needs to actually talk with you and hear about what’s going on.

Mental health is complex and you deserve time with someone who’s an expert in mental. No online test, screener, or questionnaire is a substitute for an actual conversation with a trained professional.

For many people, virtual care is a great option. In some cases, certain treatments or conditions are best treated in person or in a hybrid environment. But without that first visit, we won’t be able to know exactly what you need.
